This grinder comes without guards or tool rests. We've found them to be reliable, and they work well with our CBN wheels. Our wheels are such a good value that getting a grinder with wheels still costs less than most vendors charge for wheels alone!
The Mega Square 8" CBN 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!
Because they are made from 6061 aluminum this beast of a wheel only weighs in at 4 lbs, 10 oz. The stone wheels that come with most grinders weigh 3 lbs, 7 oz – so this wheel, while being massive, only weighs about one pound more.
The 4-in-1 Design CBN Wheel has four usable features:
1) The face of the wheel is 1.25" wide for normal sharpening.
2) 1/4" radius on each side – our present best seller for sharpening hollowing tool bits and scrapers.
3) Both sides of the wheel have a 1" side face of CBN material for non-hollow grinding skews and scrapers!
4) The inside edge of the wheel has a 9mm 90 degree gap (about 1/3") space shoulder for making relief cuts or tapers on hook type scrapers or box scrapers.
These wheels are 8" in diameter and have 5/8" arbor holes.
Shipping: $45 continental USA. NO INTERNATIONAL shipping on this product. Any and all free shipping offers do not apply to grinders. Our grinders are shipped ground with a signature required for your protection. IF FOR SOME REASON YOU DO NOT WANT A SIGNATURE REQUIRED ON DELIVERY – PLEASE LET US KNOW AT THE TIME YOU ORDER. WoodTurners Wonders will not be responsible for lost or NO Show deliveries on orders not requiring a delivery signature. THANK YOU.
Please note: Grinders are shipped fully setup and mounted with your choice of CBN Wheel(s) and your choice of grits using spherical washer set(s). All orders with wheels mounted are tested before being sent out. Guards or tool rests do not come with the grinder as most wheels are too wide, and it's assumed the user will utilize their own tool holding jigs with this setup.
There is zero chance wheels will come apart as they are machined from one solid billet, which allows use on the face and side of wheels (Mega Square and/or 4-in-1 Design). As with all power equipment caution should be taken by the experienced operator. Operator assumes all risks. Please read instructions and caution sheet in the box on the reverse side of the lifetime warranty. – Thanks.
