Cubic Boron Nitride is far better than diamond for grinding steel and will outlast a diamond plated wheel many times over. It is also tougher so will perform well at all speeds up to 3000 rpm. No coolant is required. Hardly any sparks are generated, proving that the wheel is cutting much cooler and more efficiently than any conventional grinding wheel. Carbon steel carpenters tools and plane blades can be sharpened as well as HSS (with care!)
