Now, the last problem is that the old wheel is badly out of round, and the new wheel needs dressing too.
I gave 'em both a quick lick with both the "star wheel" style dresser and a mounted diamond point,
which got the grinder at least usable, but it still wasn't quite right. They needed to be dressed properly.
To do so, I started by taking off the tool rests- note the "bite" taken out of the near one.
That's where the wire wheel eroded the cast iron away, like it did inside the guard.
