Has anyone used the Norton 3X grinding wheels on a 3600 rpm grinder? These are the blue wheels that Norton sells that supposedly run much cooler. I had always thought that you needed one of those slower grinders for chisels and plane irons but FWW has an article in its recent publication touting using a 6-inch 3X wheel at 3,600 rpm. If anyone has used such a set up, I would be interested in your thoughts on the “high” versus low rpm grinders for our typical grinding applications as woodworkers. Thanks.
