when grinding do you quench the graver or should you let air cool? if you quench would you suggest oil, water or cooling oil (lapidary grinding oil)?

Brad Simon

I quench the graver in water when doing the initial grinding cutting the top of the graver down and grinding to length. When I do the fine grinding of shaping the face of the graver I let it air cool by touching the graver face to the wheel briefly and then pulling it away just enough so it doesn’t touch and let the air flow from the wheel cool the graver.
