Checkout our Newest CBN Wheel: The Mega Square
This wheel edge is covered with CBN material and is a full 1.5 inches wide. The side faces are a full 1-inch of CBN material! For those craftsmen who don't want a radius edge sharpening wheel. Because we use 6061 Aluminum this massive wheel only weighs in at 4 lbs, 10 oz. – about one pound more than a stone wheel. We presently stock these wheels in 80, 180, 220, and 350 grits only.
It takes a woodturner to understand a woodturner's needs. Every product I offer has evolved because of a need that was realized, or because I found a less expensive way to offer a better value, otherwise—I simply won’t carry it. I am happy to offer my customers high quality woodturning products at great low prices. 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 vendors) 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 allows me to sell TWO WHEELS FOR ABOUT THE PRICE YOU WOULD PAY FOR ONE anywhere else. Please also checkout my innovative 4-in-1 wheels where you can have it all for a few dollars more. This is not some cheap bonded wheel. 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. ~Ken
Received the replacement lamp. Thank you. Every opportunity I've had to make a purchase or if I've just had a question you've always responded quickly. You know how to run a tight ship. It is noteworthy in this day and age. No excuses, no delays. You run an operation with style and efficiency. You are a credit to your company. But more importantly you are credit to yourself. I look forward to more orders in the future. Keep up the exemplary work. It is much appreciated.

I highly suggest taking a good look at the Ultimate Sanding Kit. The idea for these pieces was spawned from the automotive and sheet meal industries. If you're not familiar with the term Roloc connector, you should be because it's as 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 Sanding 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. These won’t break in five minutes. In fact I don’t think they will break as the Velcro will wear out first. Oh yeah – almost forgot – we have a fix for that Velcro too! ~Ken
It was a pleasure meeting you at Totally Turning. I knew before I went that I would be purchasing your CBN wheels and Ultimate Sanding Kit. I appreciate your advice about what grit to get for the fine wheel and I'm glad that I got the 350! The wheels run absolutely true and do an amazing job.
Thanks! God bless
