CabKing diamond REZ wheels are aggressive resin wheels used for cabbing, forming, contour grinding and pre-polishing stone, glass, synthetic material and even some metals. They are efficient wheels and well-suited for high volume commercial cabbing. REZ wheels are a mid-priced option with durability falling between CabKing's economical standard resin wheels and Diamond Pacific's top-shelf Nova Wheels.
These resin wheels come in 6" and 8" diameter sizes with a standard range of different grits to finish cabochons after initial shaping with ultra long-life Inland Sintered, top-shelf Diamond Pacific Galaxy, or standard CabKing plated diamond grinding wheels.
CabKing diamond REZ wheels are an excellent choice for high volume commercial cabbing. Using a proprietary technique, commercial grade diamonds are locked into a specially formulated resin-bonded belt that is mounted on a 1/4" thick medium density foam backing with plastic center core. The medium density foam backing absorbs pressure and provides a cushion so that the wheel conforms to your stone.
These wheels are manufactured with an aggressive resin bond, resulting in a rough texture with sharp points. Due to their textured nature, these wheels require a break-in period prior to working on your jewelry pieces. You can extend the life of your diamond wheels with the optional use of 412 Slick Lube diamond tool lubricant.
