I have purchased a low turning electric grinder and have no experience using one. The wheels on the grinder are coarse.I need to know what type of stone wheel to purchase for grinding plane blades & chisels. What kind of leather wheel for stropping? The wheels are 6 inch dia.I will need to achieve a very sharp edge,one that a man could shave with. Per haps a few guy could make some recommendations on the proper stone wheel. SIZE,GRADE,
MATERIAL and where to purchase

You can go from a cool grinding wheel to a super-fine diamond
plate and then to a buffing wheel and get really sharp tools.

Have your say...
