Hi all, does anyone use the 'gel bits' on their grinder? They are much less pricey than the brass ones. I'm wondering how the diamond holds up And whether it wears down faster than on the brass ones?
Would love to hear your experience.
Cheers, Jen.

Good question. Have not tried them either. Always used the name brands more expensive ones.  Will read what answers you get. Thanks.

Somehow, it seems to me that they might also "chip" the edges less?
