Need to design/build an angle dresser for an old #5 browne and sharp cylindrical grinder. Any ideas for designs? Angle and finish required is quite precise so would need something (perhaps screw type) to smoothly feed the diamond across the wheel face as well a fine adjustment to tweak the angle produced.

Sine dresser
As an accurate sine dresser the item from CDCOtools.com is hard to beat and at US$89 its a good price for a very nice tool.
The reference number for the search is 23107 or Sine dresser.
Use angle blocks to set the angle to a very high order of accuracy. Search item is angle blocks 35116  US$22.
Suggested principles of use of angle blocks (top only):

Accuracy etc.
Sorry,
I might have confused the issue.
I meant angle blocks OR sine bar as separate methods.
The sine bar is 2" and you will need a spacer in/under the sine bar that is equal to 2 X the Sine of the angle required.
If you have slip guages  use them, but if not it doesn't matter. Make a spacer anyway you like  mill it, turn it or even use nuts and bolts etc.  as long as its within half a thou or so (a thou ie 0.001") tolerance is OK most times otherwise use half a thou (0.0005"). The error for 0.001" over a distance or 2" is 0.029 degrees = 1.72 minutes = 1 min 43 seconds. An error of 0.0005" over 2" is half of that = 51.5 seconds.
