With the exception of normal wear of the CBN abrasive from sharpening turning tools your CBN wheel has a one-owner lifetime warranty.   

What does this Lifetime Warranty Cover?

  • Not made to run in water
  • Do not run this wheel in water
  • Warranty will be VOID if you run this wheel in water
  • Your cbn wheel will not warp, twist or have run out - which might cause it to become unbalanced.
  • The CBN material and the electroplating of the CBN abrasive material will not peel, chip, crack, come off or rub off which would render the wheel unusable.

Ken, just a quick note about the 10” CBN wheel I purchased a few weeks ago. Obviously not something I ‘needed’ to have since I already had two of you CBN wheels on my slow speed grinder. Your Tornado wheel, on my Tormek-like grinder, puts and unbelievable edge on my gouges and other turning tools. A great addition to my workshop!



Hello Ken,

Just a hi and a big thanks.  Wanted to let you know I think the set of wheels are fantastic. I have them set up on a Rikon slow speed and the wheels are balanced so perfect you can't hear the grinder running, absolutely no vibration. And the tools?... oh so sharp!!! Like never before!!!

You know I'm not a half bad turner with sharp tools. My old wheels had run their course and I had to make a choice. I will never go back to the old way.

Lovin the WoodTurners Wonders - CBN way.
