Subject:
CBN grinding wheel question

Barry Irby
I am considering a CBN wheel.

I have a 6" Rockwell grinder with an attachment that allows for micro advancing the blade and sliding it left to right. Right now I have a white wheel on it. Whatever the wheel is it barely cuts the hardened planer knives. So I am considering CBN.

What grit? Thinking 180 grit.

And, Vince's Wooden Wonders gets high marks here, but the wheel there is $175 plus shipping. At Rockler a similar wheel is $99, plus shipping. I like Vince and would like to support the little guy, but that's quite a stretch. Is there something I am not seeing?
