    I’m looking to buy some disc’s. I found nickle plated and electroplated.  What are the differences and is one better then the other.

    Thanks,

    I’m note sure the comparison makes sense.

    Electroplating is a process.  Nickel is a kind of metal that can be electroplated.

    There are two general categories of diamond products – electroplated and sintered. 

    Sintered are far superior and much more expensive.  For example, an electroplated diamond wheel for a lathe that costs $125 would be in the neighborhood of $700 for a sintered version.

    Thanks Paul, I couldn’t figure out why one place calls them nickle plated and another calls them electroplated.  I did see that the electroplated one said that it was on nickle so it is good to know they are both the same.  I just wanted to check before I purchased anything. 

    As always thanks for your help.
