Point Tool

This tool is shown ground with 3 cutting edges, approximately 120º wide. The diagram on the left shows the tool, looking down at one of the cutting edges. The diagram at the right shows that tool rotated 90º, and the same cutting edge is now on the top.

This tool is one where reshaping the cutting surface can be onerous, and the Tormek BGM-100 Bench Grinding Mounting Set can be quite useful. When grinding on a high speed grinder, all the settings remain the same.
