Re: Agitating on recommended grinders...

Bill Tindall, E.Tn.
It would seem that this experience is focused toward anyone with a need to hog off lots of metal. I am using a 120 grit pink wheel for sharpening. For a long time I ran it slow for control of the metal removal. ( I run it 3600 rpm now that I am more experienced.) But rate of material removal has never been my concern. Controlling metal going away was the concern, especially as I neared the tip. My point is that this wheel may not be the best for someone just grinding to restore a hollow, and maybe not experienced with grinding at that.

What is the bond letter of your new wheel? Actually what is the total wheel description so the details of the abrasive particle are known as well?
