I'm going to go out on a limb, and say nobody does this.

I agree with Pete that these should be viewed as consumables.

Marty is correct about the HIS recommendations.

The issue with the carbide stick is that the process is really meant for diamond tools that are sintered, not electroplated like the discs in question. It's a way to coax a little more life out of one. In my experience it would come back to life for about five minutes, and then go back to cutting poorly again. Bear in mind that most of my experience is in a student setting (see Marty's comments again), or rental shops.

It's really more about how they're used. Who's using it, and what type of work is done.
Temperature and time.
