The Wolverine jig comes with instructions how to set it up. It explains what to do for a 6” grinder…... Jerry (in Tucson)

You need friable wheels (white or blue). The grey wheels that come with most grinders are not appropriate for use with HSS tools.

I have been using basic One Way sharpening jig & Vari-grind jig for years. I have a 6” Craftsmen single speed grinder with 46 & 80 grit friable wheels. When that grinder dies will buy an 8” single speed grinder.

I buy these AL friable wheels, after shopping around for best price. Been buying my wheels at these two vendors years cannot buy them in my town.

I have used white, pink and blue wheels from different manufacturers seems Camel CNC and Norton sold by all woodturning vendors today.

I have the wolverine jig and like it well. I use the Woodcraft 8” slow speed grinder with mine. I am not sure if I would like a 6” and the grinder should be slow speed. The Woodcraft slow speed grinder comes with the white wheels.
