Equipment and procedures for test grinding abrasive disks and for coating such disks in the laboratory are described. Criteria useful in evaluating performance are defined and discussed. Discard criteria for worn disks are analyzed and the suggestion made that the effective life of the disk ends when the cutting rate is some specified percentage of its initial cutting rate. This paper is the first of a series dealing with the mechanism of the cutting action of abrasive disks.
