Why CBN wheels over Aluminum Oxide?
Cubic Boron Nitride (CBN) wheels are machined from solid steel and are bonded with Cubic Boron Nitride (CBN). CBN wheels have 4 times higher abrasive resistance, 55 times higher thermal conductivity and twice the hardness of aluminium oxide wheels.
These wheels can make almost any grinder perform at a much higher level. Just think about not having to prepare your grinding stone by dressing and shaping it each time, simply turn on your grinder and get to sharpening without any hassle.
One of the main advantages of CBN wheels is that you can sharpen without the requirement of coolant as the wheels don't overheat or burn the tools. These wheels provide excellent removal of steel whilst also delivering a sharp edge and smooth finish with very little effort and less heat damage to your tools.
Why throw in throw in the Heligrind and Universal Rests?
In swaping the Aluminium Oxide wheel to a CBN wheel, the side cover on the left no longer fits due to the larger wheel, because of this the stock tool rests no longer fit. We weren't going to simply ignore this. So we included the Heligrind Toolrest Jig.
What is a HeliGrind Turning Tool Sharpening Kit
The HeliGrind Sharpening System is the only jig on the market that will sharpen gouges on the helical path – the ideal way to sharpen all your woodturning gouges. This type of grind is known as either a fingernail or sidegrind and is recommended but virtually impossible to grind accurately freehand.
The HeliGrind is a versatile jig that is fixed in front of your bench grinder and has several attachments to simplify and make more accurate sharpening grinds of a range of different tools.
