Our WoodRiver 180-Grit CBN Grinding Wheel, 8"x 1" for Grinders with a 5/8" Arbor is used for grinding steel of all kinds and enjoys a distinct advantage over a traditional Aluminum Oxide (AO) grinding wheel. The CBN coating is tough, will never load up or require dressing, and wheel balance isn’t an issue because the wheel is machined from a steel plate. The CBN coating covers the wheel from edge to edge, as well as for a short distance down the face, and the coating works with the steel to keep heat at bay. Overheating or burning a tool is much less likely, and CBN coatings last a long time. There is also no danger of the wheel breaking or fragmenting during use and while this is certainly an added safety feature, we recommend the wheel be used
with all guards in place.

Features:

• Cubic Boron Nitride coated wheel

• Balanced – wheel machined from steel plate

• Never requires dressing

• Economical – CBN coating lasts for years under normal use

    Excellent Grinding Wheel

    I was skeptical about purchasing this wheel for my 8" slow speed grinder but once I used it I am impressed. The price is high but worth it. No more dressing or balancing my blue and white wheels again! This wheel ran absolutely true on my grinder and installed quickly. It leaves an impressive finish on my tools and I don't have to use water when I grind. The tools do not heat up! Its also nice to have the CBN coating on the side of the wheel to grind a flat edge on my turning tools when necessary. I hope woodcraft will come out with a CBN wheel in the 300 grit range for superfine work.
