    Manufactured exclusively for Craft Supplies USA to our specifications, these custom Norton® 3X™ Grinding Wheels are guaranteed to outlast hardware store 3X™ wheels while cutting fast and burn-free.

    Available in 6" and 8" diameters, all wheels have a 1" diameter arbor hole and include a nested bushing set that allows you to adapt the wheel to fit your grinder. The 1" arbor hole also lets you take advantage of the Raptor R3X Grinding Wheel Bushing for optimum grinder performance. For those who prefer to use only one wheel, we recommend 80 grit for moderate sharpening, 46 grit if you want to reshape tools on a regular basis.
  • 6" x 3/4" Wheels: for grinders with 1/2", 5/8", 3/4", 7/8" or 1" arbor sizes
  • 8" x 1" Wheels: for grinders with 5/8", 3/4", 7/8" or 1" arbor sizes
  • Made with Norton's patented SG (ceramic alumina) grain with a K hardness rating

You will be glad you purchased one

Comments On Nov 20, 2015:With this grinding wheel, you will be so glad you purchased it, you won;t know how you did without one previously. The other grinding wheels...aside from the Diamond wheels, are generally a little to ruff, and wear your tool out so much sooner when you are just trying to touch-up on your tool. With this Norton ceramic wheel, you will find that you don't remove that much material, and that you get a more refined/sharpened tool that with a conventional grinding stone.
I love the one I got, and will be switching my coarser grit stone as soon as possible.
***As a side note, I do recommend getting the bushings and washers that is sold on this site, as it does make a big difference on the amount of vibration, and it cuts down on the transferred amount of heat from the stone to the grinder, due to the bushing being made out of aluminum. They hold great, are light, and help balance out the stone better than the factory set that comes with the grinder. Just something to think about. When I bought the bushings for the single grinding wheel I got so far...the bushings were under twenty dollars and worth every penny of it. My grinder now runs quietly and doesn't heat up like it used to.***

3X stone works well

Comments On Oct 06, 2015:With this wheel I can quickly get a keen edge. When needed, I can quickly dress it. When new it did not require much fussing to get it properly balanced. In my experience, it does not wear faster than expected, and I've been using it for several years. I do overheat the steel easily, but I'm pretty sure that's me being impatient and not the stone. I would buy again--in fact, I'm thinking of getting one for my newer 8" grinder.

Very soft

Comments On Dec 11, 2014:This stone wears very easy. Have sharpen very few gouges and the stone is wearing very quick. Seems like its made of sand stone with blue coloring.
