Questions & Answers (4)

how do you dress a diamond blade?

To dress a diamond blade, simply make one or two small cuts into a Solid Gold dressing stone. Do not cut any deeper than the total diamond segment height of your blade. The resinous stone will effectively clean the blade's diamond matrix and remove any glaze or debris to expose fresh, sharp diamond that is ready to cut "like-new".

My blade was cutting great but I tried stacking a few tiles to speed things up and now it cuts really slow and is chipping a lot. Will this stone help?

Inspect the cutting rim of your blade - if diamond is still visible along the edge of the blade it can very likely be dressed and restored.

will this stop my blade from sparking?

Sparking can be caused by many factors including a dull and dirty blade, improper water flow/heat dissipation, the material being cut, and the rate at which you are cutting. Always use a sharp, freshly dressed blade to achieve the cleanest cuts possible. Don't force the tile, let the blade do the cutting.

How do the Solid Gold dressing stones work?

A blade's cutting rim can easily become clogged and glazed-over. Dirty blades can cause tiles to rub, bounce, burn, or chip. Solid Gold resin dressing stones effectively remove glaze and debris from the blade's cutting rim and expose clean, sharp diamond that is ready to cut again "like-new". Many dull or "dead" diamond blades may still have plenty of life left in them - ALWAYS TRY DRESSING YOUR CONDEMNED DIAMOND BLADES BEFORE TOSSING THEM AWAY!

It works

by -

I dress my blades every 40 cuts or so just to be safe and definitely get nicer results and fewer chips after dressing with this stone

Best dressing stone

by -

These stones work just like the old true blues. Big size lasts longer and keeps blades cutting smooth.

CLEAN CUTS

by -

this dressing stone actually works as described. dress the blade as soon as you notice any chipping or sloppy cuts and you'll be good to go. i wish i saved all the blades i threw away over the years. highly recommended, especially for any glass block cutting. thanks!

Good

Noticeably better cuts with my Dewalt XP4 and T3 Razor

buy this stone

by -

you will thank yourself later. bought it to see what the hype was about but it didnt come with any instructions so i just rubbed it by hand at first but then realized you are supposed to cut into it. i cut 3 small lines into the stone and sure enough my cuts were silky smooth after that. you have the get in a habit of occasionally dressing your blades between cuts they say dress every 40-50 cuts but i dress more like every 20-30 cuts

Solid Gold

I received a sample stone with my last order. It brought 2 of my old blades back to life so I ended up returning the extra blade that I bought. Thanks CD!

worth it

by -

purchased along with a T3 Razor for porcelain and an Alpha Vetro for glass. the gold is longer than the raimondi stone and requires fewer cuts to successfully dress the blade. worth the few extra bucks for the bigger size and longer lasting resin. A+

must-have for any real tile setter

by -

so many novices out there wasting money on new blades after theirs becomes glazed over. guys, use a dressing stone!!! seriously, diamond is STRONG and will LAST A LONG TIME. dressing your blade is standard maintenance. i can understand that manufactures usually skip over this important step to get you to buy more blades, but seriously try dressing your blade if it is not performing well before you trash it. these solid gold stones are the best dressing stones i've seen so far and i've been layin tile for over 22 years. not sure what they put in these things but they work exactly as they should

great suggestion

by -

didnt know about dressing stones until calling contractors direct to order another blade and the customer service rep suggested a solid gold. i was pleasantly surprised to see a big improvement with my old blades and have been regularly using it on my new blade to keep it cutting fast. thanks for recommending this stone.
