micro crystal grinding wheel Grinding wheels made from Microcrystalline grit cut twice as fast and much cooler than the best conventional wheels. They give an extremely keen edge and are very easy to use. They are by far the best wheels woodturners can buy.

They self sharpen as they are used and require minimal dressing. They will last up to five times longer than a white wheel so are very economical.

They will comfortably outperform white, red, pink or blue fused aluminium oxide wheels and of course they are light years ahead of those awful grey wheels which come on cheap grinders.

Micro crystal grit is made using radical new ceramic technology which is revolutionising the abrasives industry. Each grain of grit is actually a clump of hundreds of tiny crystals sintered together. The crystals continuously break away in use exposing thousands of fresh sharp microscopic cutting edges. Because the crystals are so small and numerous the finish on the steel is as good as from a very much finer wheel. The edge you get is almost as good as that from a wet grinder but obtained very much quicker. The cutting is so fast and cool you can quickly re-shape a tool without burning the steel. It works on carbon steel as well as HSS and you can even (with care) sharpen the thin edge of a carpenter's chisel. Try that with a white wheel!
