I just finished putting a nice old Hover bench grinder back to work. The wheels are 1x8 inchs and a very fine grit. I powered her with a 1725 -- 3/4hp motor.
I want to buy wheels that are coarser and have no ideal what to look for. My goal is to sharpen HHS square stock for wood lathe tools.

Thanks

T1-46A WA46H8V8 WHITE This is a great wheel for HSS. 46 grit is very popular in toolrooms where HSS is being ground. I use this and a 60 grit wheel on my bench grinder.

I use Norton 3X 80 grit wheels for my high HSS woodturning tools with great success. They contain 30% ceramic. Another, more expensive, choice is the Norton SG wheel that contains 60% ceramic.

46 g-h-i white wheel will work fine for sharpening..

I get some great deals at eBay on grinding wheels..
I bought a case of six 10" 46 h white Norton wheels for $30 a few years ago..
