Please don’t flame me if this is a sticky somewhere; I truly did look.
Tomorrow I want to order a 3X norton grinding stone for my grinders ( hand and 1/3 Hp benchgrinder) primarily for sharpening planes and chisles.
My question is; is there an advantage to getting a 1 inch thick wheel over a 3/4 inch stone?
Since ill be purchasing a diamond dresser to go along with it and putting a crown on it I was thinking a 1 inch would offer no advantage since contact would be in center. Still, thought maybe id ask as there may be other reasons i haven’t considered (better vibration dampening, better balance…)
