I would not grind on the carbides, You will find that it is extremely hard , And why take away material you paid good money for. Back In 93-95, me and a few fellow riders that worked together thought abought this, and grinding carbides was not the answer, They have a Rockwell hardness of 65-70, Cant remember exactly, but almost like a file, We bought a roll of Lincoln 60, (Welder wire) at that time was the hardest a person could buy, and ran strips of weld where the hard weld is on the wear rods, as it is almost impossible to weld to the carbide itself, WE used to grind it to a V but it took alot of grinding discs, but we didnt pay for it..LOL The stuff was unreal ! To this day I still dont buy replacements for years in between....
