  • Beveling Alnico rods

    What's a good tool for this? A file will work but for obvious reasons, the file gets torn up more than the Alnico.

      Do you have one in mind for a dremel or drill press?

        First, the eternal question: where do you live?

        Fill the "location" field in your profile.

        EDIT: just as an example:

        In these small sizes, search jewelry tool shops rather than industrial ones.

          Chuck in a cordless drill, then with a bench grind running spin the drill, opposite direction of bench grinding wheel works best. Harbor Freight bench grinder, 4" if you don't have one. It bevels them quickly so be careful..

                Bench grinder with a green wheel formulated for harder materials. Most grinder wheels are a bit soft and will wear down quickly. Harbor freight has cheap-ass diamond disks for your Dremel sold in packs of 5. Don't breath the dust, cobalt is a known carcinogen.
