  • grind wheel for tungsten

    guys,
    what type of grind wheel makeup should i order to sharpen my tungsten on a standard bench grinder that takes a 6" wheel with a 1" shaft hole ?
    curious what you guys are using.
    at work we use a belt sander, but everyone uses it for all kinds of different things and im afraid its contaminating our tungsten when we use it.
    we have a grinder that nobody uses and want a dedicated wheel for it. the current wheel we have, not sure what its made of, its green in color, wears out really quick, not hard enough.

    thanks guys..

      That soft green wheel is probably for grinding carbide tooling.---Meltedmetal

        I have found the best thing for me is a flap wheel on a 4 1/2'' grinder. Nothing fancy

          This was posted on the Weldingweb site. I didn't search for the thread on this but I did buy this harbor freight circular saw diamond wheel. It works great. I mount it to the side of a existing grinding wheel on a bench grinder. Thing is great for $ 10.00. Use a 20 % off and save more.

              No need to make a mount just take the handle off your grinder and put it in a vise upside down, dont squash it go easy and your done.

                The harbor freight wheel is rated at 6600 RPM'S MAX. I would ''ONLY USE IT ON A BENCH GRINDER '' not on a angle grinder unless it is variable speed or less than 6600 RPM'S.

                  I use a 1/4 collet angle grinder with 100 grit 3" roloc disks for past 3 years. Works great and cheap.
