Coming into the 21st Century
Mar 8th, 2018 at 11:00am
 
Last night at our Etowah River Woodturners meeting, we had Ken Rizza of Woodturners Wonders demonstrating his wares and I gave in. I was going to be a good boy and not spend any money, but I ended up buying a CBN wheel from him and all I can say is Oh My Goodness what a difference it makes... After I got home and installed the wheel, I resurfaced one of my gouges and did some test cuts and it was night and day as far as the surface I ended up with.... a 5/8's gouge ended up leaving a surface comparable to what I get with a skew... I'm rather happy I splurged last night.

Ronald, all I can say is you'll probably wish you had switched sooner. I switched 5 years ago and couldn't be more pleased with their performance. Also knowing I'll never have to by a stone wheel again is great.

Just got my cbn’s installed last week, went with a 180 and 350 grit and wow what an edge they put on the tools. Put the old 60 and 120 grit wheels on my old grinder for roughing work and reshaping.
