Grinding Wheel Review by Bill Neddow
A while back Bill Neddow wrote an excellent review of grinding wheels for the American Association of Woodturners www.woodturner.org and it featured our Precision Plated Diamond and CBN Wheels.
Bill says of CBN wheels “If I use a CBN wheel, I never have to adjust my sharpening jig. I can leave it set exactly the way I want, and since the wheel never gets smaller, I get the same grind every time. One light pass over the 180-grit wheel is enough to sharpen a tool to razor-blade quality most of the time. If my tool is really dull, then one pass over the 80 grit wheel, followed by a light pass over the 180 grit wheel will return the edge to perfection.”
The Cuttermaster six inch wheels were originally created as a replacement for the Darex M5 wheel.
