All the tool companies have something.

Grizzly has a lot of wheels (60 grit)

But MSC and others work too.
What Diameter are you using?

I do our sharpening with an 8 inch iameter grinder with 1 inch wide wheels.
I have the Wolverine sharpening jig.

Depending on your grinder, a wheel that wide may not fit without removing the guards, which can be dangerous with friable wheels.

The 8 inch white wheels can be bought at woodcraft, they are made by Norton.
