Has anyone tried CBN wheel on a tormek?

Grinders, wheels, CBN, ... Great, I had a question about this. My tormek wheel is getting small and I was wondering if the CBN wheels from wood turners wonders were that interesting.

I mostly use my tormek to restore my planes and chisels bevels true and hollow, so coarse only. I sharpen and hone on stones and strop.
It’s a slow machine but I really appreciate how quiet it operates compared to a grinder, and the jigs are good. And I already paid it, that’s a plus. On the other hand, water can be messy and truing the stone make my neighbors dogs go crazy :)

WTW wheels for tormek only go down to 200 grit. Is that worth 200usd compared to the standard 100usd sg-200 for coarse grinding?
