Product Information:

Aluminum Oxide Grinding Wheels are a giant step above the conventional gray, hard, slow cutting wheels which tend to burn tools as the grinding surface becomes dull and glazed. Made of granulated aluminum oxide with a vitrified white bond, they allow the grains of abrasive to wear off, thus providing a consistently fresh grinding surface. Sharpening is faster, with less danger of taking the temper out of the tool. This 8" diameter, 120-grit wheel comes with reducer bushings to fit 3/4" and 5/8" shafts. Also available in 6".

  • 8" diameter, 1" wide, 120-grit grinding wheel
  • Sharpens faster, with less danger of taking the temper out of the tool
  • Granulated aluminum oxide with a vitrified white bond
  • 8" wheels have reducer bushings to fit 3/4" and 5/8" shafts

    Good Israeli Grinding Wheel

    By  Cheesehead

    Best Uses

    • Sharpening

    Comments about Aluminum Oxide 8" x 1" Grinding Wheel, White, 120 Grit :

    Wheel is well balanced and can be set to run "true". Oversized ID requires (comes with) a plastic telescoping adapter. No metal reducers seem to be available. Time will tell whether plastic adapter is sufficient. I would prefer a metal adapter/ hubs. Even better would be a 5/8" ID so no adapter would be necessary.

    Plastic bushing unusable with 5/8" arbor

    • Sharpening

    Comments about Aluminum Oxide 8" x 1" Grinding Wheel, White, 120 Grit :

    The plastic bushing is useless on anything other than 1" arbor. First time you run it up to speed, it will begin to wobble. So, for 5/8ths arbor, you'll need to order a steel bushing from [...] (part #8491A562), about $10 plus shipping. 1-star as sold for 5/8ths arbor, 4-stars with replacement steel bushing.

    the hub spacers are so soft and loose that they fall out after the first vibration test. do NOT buy this unless you have a 1" shaft.

    • None

    Comments about Aluminum Oxide 8" x 1" Grinding Wheel, White, 120 Grit :

    I purchased the wheel from Woodcraft to sharpen wood turning tools, however it was unuseable. The wheel wobbled so bad it could not be balanced. I called mfg. and they said to call place of purchase and they would send it to the mfg and then I would get a new one. I needed one then, not weeks later. Definitely will not buy another.
