Here you will find bench grinding wheels, tool room wheels, and production grinding wheels in some common sizes of various grit types, grit sizes, and hardness. Please inquire about others that were not listed here. In most cases, we stock several close variations of the same wheel: For example, if we only show a 60 grit ‘I’ hardness for a particular size, we probably carry an ‘H’ and a ‘J’ hardness and a 46 and 80 grit too.
Typically, we stock grit ranges from 36 to 150 and hardness from ‘H’ to ‘L’. Also, we can custom design and have manufactured most any wheel to your needs. Pricing is generally a little higher for this service and lead time are a little longer (up to 6-8 weeks), but you are assured of getting exactly the correct wheel for your unique application. Please send your requirements to us for pricing.
