I use an old Cincinnati 6” 1750 rpm grinder outfitted with a 100 grit and 150 grit friable wheels. I picked up the grinder and stand for $20, replaced the bearings, painted it and mounted a Wolverine jig for sharpening turning tools under it. It did cost a little more for the jig but the grinder will run forever. I would look used and clean it up add some bearings and call it done. But thats just me. I dont like buying chinese tools.
