Has anyone here ever seen this done?
I have a bench grinder that goes way too fast.
I now have a lathe that turns as slow as 600 RPM and has a pivoting headstock.
I know some have used a faceplate and PSA paper for sanding.
What I need is an adapter from 1” x 8TPI to an arbor for a grinding wheel.
Maybe a 6 or 8 inch 180 grit.
Then perhaps one of those homemade jigs for grinding gouges.

Never tried the grinding wheel but did make an 8”wooden wheel with a leather strop around the perimeter. Mounted it on the “left” side of the head stock for touching up tools while turning. Worked pretty good.
