I use a Norton “fine” grey aluminum oxide wheel on my 3600 rpm grinder. It is friable and needs to be touched up often as do all soft wheels. Gotta be gentle, but sure works for my irons and lathe tools. I buff on another motor (1750 rpm) with cloth wheels and compound. A 3600 rpm buffer will get ya into trouble real fast (no pun). Wire wheels will work on the 3600 just fine.
