I have a Jet Slow Speed Sharpener. The nut and washers that hold the grinding wheel have rusted horribly. They did so in just a few months and I live in an area where rust is really not a problem.
Have any of you switched to stainless steel? If so, where did you purchase them?
I do not see any way to prevent the rust. The washers are in direct contact with a stone that is damp all of the time. The washers then start the nut to rust.
Thanks in advance!
