The wheels on your grinder are as important or more so than the grinder itself. Use grey wheels on tool steels and you`ll likely damage the temper. Grey wheels are good for angle iron etc and not ww tools. Get some white wheels for O1 steel blades or blue wheels for stuff like A2 tool steel. Your Veritas iron will be either O1 or A2.
