If talking about turning tools all you need is a friable aluminum oxide wheel. Yes they come in blue, pink/red, and white. Each manufacturer uses different colors, I like Norton K-hardness blue, or CGW (camel) K-hardness that can come in blue, pink, or blue wheels. I have also used softer Norton white wheels.

Do look local if can find them or shop sales online. I have to order Al friable wheels because they do not sell them in my town. I use 46 grit K wheel for reshaping or repairng bevel angles, and 80 or 100 grit for resharpening.

Been getting my wheels from these folks because have a fair price and shipping not so high.
