I got the 180 grit wheel. I don't do a lot of reshaping, so it was great for me. And it cuts very quickly. I got the D-Way radiused wheel. It has a 1/4" radius on either side, which makes grinding scrapers and highly swept tools a lot easier.

I also bought the 180 grit from Dway tools. Good guy to do business with. Call him, he'll take the time to help you buy what need. I have 60 grit on the other side.

I like D-Way tools the best because has widest wheels. I need a new grinder because wheel shaft not long enough on my grinder. Suggest you watch video and make sure wheel will fit whatever grinder you have.

Packard Woodworks sells a narrower wheel, still have same problem and need a new grinder.

Bill

Good luck and I can not wait to hear how you like it.

I do not have one but would have to buy the 6" since that is the grinder my father in law had.

I have a 180 grit Opti-Grind CBN wheel it's also 1 1/2" wide & also has CBN on the side for side grinding. I little pricier than the D-way but I have no regrets & would buy one again if I were to ever have a need for another.
