Grinding Wheels.—The old term " emery " wheels applied to this
group has long been abandoned, since emery is employed to a limited
and ever-lessening extent, having been replaced by more effective grinding
materials.

Emery and Corundum.—The difference between these is one of
purity. Alumina is the chief constituent of each. Corundum contains a
higher proportion of alumina than emery, and its grains split, leaving sharp
edges; while emery wears smoothly, with a glazed surface. Both materials
are impregnated with oxide of iron, which, when present in large quantities,
reduces the cutting capacity. On the other hand, emery wheels produce a
high finish.
