Why should a grinding stone that is used for sharpening tungsten not be used for other metals?

To determine

The reason of using grinding stone for sharpening of tungsten not used for other metals.

Explanation

The main reason of using grinding stone for sharpening of tungsten electrode is the hardness and brittleness of the tungsten electrode. The grinding stone slightly impact the end of the electrode; hence the end of electrode is shaped easily if the electrode is for tungsten. If other material electrode is slightly impacted then it cannot be easily shaped, because the hardness and brittleness of other metal is more as compare to tungsten.

Tungsten electrode- Tungsten electrode is used in TIG (Tungsten inert gas) welding as a welding electrode. Tungsten electrode is the desired electrode for TIG welding, because the tungsten electrode has a low melting point, and tungsten electrode is a non-consumable electrode...
