After almost a year of development, we changed vendors, we changed countries, we changed the packaging (including the name on the cover) and we've added special stabilizing washers (helpful on older machines with worn shafts). Our new CBN grinding wheels are 8" in diameter and a full 1-1/2" wide. We have tightened up the tolerances for the mounting hole so you should never have any wobble whatsoever. Now 28% lighter than before, even the 1/2 hp grinders will be compatible with these new wheels.
Manufacturers recommend wheels made of CBN—not diamond—for sharpening tool steel. CBN is cubic boron nitride and it is almost as hard a diamond—it will actually scratch diamond. The abrasive is electroplated to a solid steel wheel to create a grinding wheel that out performs the traditional aluminum oxide wheels.
CBN is used widely in industry where precise sharpening and shaping is required.
Can be used from 100 to 3500 RPM
Little if any heat produced during grinding
Cuts fast with little pressure when grinding
Wheel stays flat and true and will not change
Will last many years with proper handling

Leaves a fine and even finish on the tools
Designed for hard steels like high speed steel
