Aluminium oxide grinding wheels are the woodworker’s choice for bench grinding wheels as they provide a cool yet maximum cutting rate on hardened tool and high-speed steel commonly found in woodworking tools.
The grit refers to the density of the crystalline structure of the plate – the higher the density the slower the material stock removal – therefore acting as a “finer grit” but this also can lead to increased heat build-up with the chance of changing the structure of the cutting edge or “burning” the edge.
We generally recommend a 46 or 60 “Grit” wheel for most woodworking applications.
We have sold the Abrasiflex grinding wheels for more than 20 years now because –
· The white aluminum oxide is held in a premium vitrified bond
· Each wheel contains nested bushings to accommodate a wide variety of standard arbor sizes
· The performance of Abrasiflex wheels is on par with other brands but offers great value-for-money
