First of all, I would like to thank everybody ahead of time. I'm sure somebody will get tired of me asking all these questions I'm going to have.
As I'm reading my homework assignment "Woodturning - A Foundation Course" by Keith Rowley he is talking about sharp tools and every woodturner to be successful needs to learn how to do things properly.
I have the following grinder that I've never used (picked it up at Lowe's on a closeout for $25), looked like a good deal. I also picked up a stationary stand for this.
I'm also looking at getting something like one of these.
The question I have is. Are the grinding wheels that are standard (grinding and white friable sharpening wheels) on the grinder sufficient for what I need to do, or do I need to get something else. I don't mind spending some money to get the correct thing, if needed.
Also, since the grinder I have is a variable speed (2000 - 3450 RPM) - What speed should I be using?
Or do I need a different grinder all together?
