A grinding dresser or wheel dresser is a tool to dress (that is, slightly trim) the surface of a grinding wheel.Grinding dressers are used to return a wheel to its original round shape (that is, to true it up), to expose fresh grains for renewed cutting action (including cleaning away clogged areas), or to make a different profile (cross-sectional shape) on the wheel's …
The dressing tool features six hardened star-toothed cutters and two tabs to steady the tool for a more even finish. With a straight handle for firm control, this grinding wheel dresser extends the life of your grinding wheels.
Grinding wheels are self-sharpening to a small degree; for optimal use they may be dressed and trued by the use of wheel or grinding dressers. Dressing the wheel refers to removing the current layer of abrasive, so that a fresh and sharp surface is exposed to the work surface.
Wheel dressers and dressing tools are used to condition, true, and dress grinding wheels. Dressing is the process of re-sharpening the tiny cutting edges on a grinding wheel's surface. Diamond tools and wheel dressers fracture the grinding wheel's abrasive grains in order to produce sharp new edges.
By changing the dressing conditions, it is possible to rough and finish grind using the same diamond dressing wheel and the same grinding wheel. By controlling the speed of the dressing wheel, or by reversing its rotation, the effective roughness of the grinding wheel can be varied in the ratio of 1:2.

How to Dress a Grinding Wheel-to the best grinding wheel ...
Dressing . When the sharpness of grinding wheel becomes dull because of glazing and loading, dulled grains and chips are removed (crushed or fallen) with a proper dressing tool to make sharp cutting edges and simultaneously, make recesses for chips by properly extruding to grain cutting edges.
Dressing cleans and restores a glazed and loaded grinding wheel by cutting the surface back to its original sharpness. Diamond dressing a grinding wheel removes dull grains, swarf and excess bonding material, exposing sharp new cutting particles.
If surface dressing is done during grinding, correct selection of the dressing parameters is important. Dressing depth depends on the grit size in the grinding wheel, and is the same for all types of dressing tools.
