    If this won't cut it...

    Grinder was on back order. Finally showed up yesterday. With a one month vacation starting, sorta, this needed to get done. Maybe a CBN someday...but not sure if my limited skills would know the difference

    That's a pretty nice looking set up, Jim. I had good luck with the white wheels before I got the CBN. Just keep 'em dressed/balanced and they should serve you well.

    Why a CBN wheel? I would have thought you would want the grinder for fast removal, then use the Tormek for the slower, finish sharpening. Is there some tool you think the CBN on the grinder would work better for?

    Jim, you big scaredy cat!

    Randal, a CBN wheel performs much the same duties as a regular dry grinding wheel, but it's faster cutting, and MUCH better balanced, making it a lot smoother and easier to control the grind. Also, it remains a consistent diameter and doesn't get grooves in it. I've got a pair of fancy Oneway wheels and balancing kits on my dry grinder (also use a Tormek), but the CBN wheels I've used on other guys' grinders put my dry grinding setup to shame. I'll be getting a CBN wheel once I get my shop setback up.

    I probably should know this, but what is a CBN wheel?
    Cheers,
