    There is conflicting info about single point and cluster diamond dressers. I decided to use a cluster dresser for the top surface, and a single point for the edge. Seems to be semi intuitive and works pretty well.

    I guess because the single just has to kiss a very thin edge of the wheel, and the cluster dresses a surface that is quite a bit wider...

    Mine only has single point what are you seeing different by using the multipoint?

    That's where the conflicting info comes in, I have been told the cluster leaves a "nicer finish". Others, have been told the exact opposite...IDK? They both make a lot of dust that I'm careful not to breathe!

    I think the result of dressing the stone is more dependent on the operator than the dresser.

    Either will work and can provide the results you are after

    I've managed to grind the hell out of mine with the single point dressers. Lol. Just start at the corner and go slow.

    I’ve used em both, you can dress just a fuzz faster with the multi point. Bout the only difference I found

    Madsens told me to use single point to rough in wheels and multi point to wear them out.

    To me, the multi point gives a smoother finish faster than the single does on the top dresser. It doesn’t “bite” the stone as hard as the single .................

    Always spin the wheel so it's lifting the dressing arm and it will limit the bite factor.

    Could you post a picture of a chain done the way your are describing so I could get an idea of what to look for. Thank you

    What do you mean 28-32 degrees of tooth down angle?
