Re: Hand scraping? ()

Tungsten carbide tools can be ground with silicon carbide wheels. it's all I ever saw in machine shops for decades for hand shaping/sharpening carbide tooling. The shops making the tools used diamond abrasive. Don't know what the situation is now.

M4 is readily ground with aluminum oxide wheels. I have M4 lathe tools and sharpen them routinely with a common white or pink wheel.
