High Quality WoodTurning Products — Great Low Prices
Much of what you’ll find on this website was born out of frustration—CBN wheels, lamps and sanding supplies. It takes a woodturner to understand a woodturner's needs. Every product you see here has evolved because of a need that was realized, or because I found a less expensive way to offer a better value, otherwise—we simply won’t carry it. Feel free to call for special club pricing on multiple unit purchases.
—CBN or Cubic Boron Nitride has been around for a while but woodturners as a whole seem to be just catching on to this fantastic way of sharpening your high speed, steel turning tools. It's very similar to synthetic diamonds but its characteristics make it better than diamonds for sharpening steel.
No more stone dust to breathe, no more truing and balancing stone wheels and no more readjusting your setup tools to compensate for an ever shrinking stone wheel. The problem in the past (and still now with most other sellers) is they are too damned expensive. Well, in keeping with my philosophy of making things better or more affordable, I was able to do both when it comes to CBN wheels. All my CBN wheels have a radius edge - the brainchild of David Ellsworth - for sharpening small ¼ square hollowing bits instead of plain edges. This alone would cost a premium elsewhere with a price north of $220 for one wheel plus the cost of a bushing. Well, my volume buying, low overhead, fair margins, and high inventory turns allow me to sell TWO WHEELS FOR ABOUT THE PRICE YOU WOULD PAY FOR ONE anywhere else. Please also checkout my innovative 4-in-1 wheel where you can have it all for a few dollars more. These are not some cheap bonded wheels. These are highly machined 6061 aluminum wheels that are electroplated with nickel alloy. It is by far the best way to manufacture a CBN wheel.
What’s more, we offer a lifetime warranty on these wheels, and one is included in every box. What’s more, if you have a need for a special grinding wheel, we can make it for you and in most cases there is no additional charge. Give us a call — we'll be glad to help.
I highly suggest taking a good look at the Ultimate Sanding Kit. These pieces were spawned from the automotive and sheet meal industries. If you're not familiar with the term Roloc connector, you should be because it is tough as nails and almost non-breakable. Read the whole explanation on the Ultimate Kit and you will see what an exceptional value it is. It’s like having 10 of those $21.00 holders for a fraction of the cost.
If the Ultimate System doesn’t meet your fancy we have some heavy duty conventional style 2 and 3-inch sanding pad holders that are very rugged. The foam is wrapped around the base, the stem is metal and it screws into a metal receiver. This won’t break in five minutes. In fact I don’t think it will break as the Velcro will wear out first. Oh – yeah - almost forgot - we have a fix for that Velcro too!
Our philosophy: If we can’t bring you a good product to enhance your turning experience or save you money—you won’t see it on this website.
