Grinder question...

DWR
>... I am in the market for a new grinder... upgrading to an 8" and a Wolverine system... (20 years of freehand grinding and I am ready to do a "jig").

My question is: What width wheel do you recommend? I have always used 3/4" wheels but have been giving serious thought to moving to 1" wide wheels. Selection of 8" grinders with 1" wide wheels is more limited but still have some good choices.

Those of you that use 3/4" and a grinding jig, do you feel your results are good or do you wish you had 1" wide wheels?

Thanks!
