Norton 3X Blue Grinding Wheel
ItemĀ #: 3SG
Price: $42.99 - $52.99
  
 


When speed is important to your grinding, the Norton 3X wheel is a wheel worth considering. Unlike other fast cutting wheels, the 3X wheel actually runs cool so you run less risk of overheating your tool. Our medium 60 grit is a good way to grind your initial bevel. After grinding, a few strokes on a bench stone and your tools are ready for use. This wheel is in a softer I-grade suitable for high carbon steel. The 8" wheel has a 1" arbor hole with bushings for 7/8", 3/4" and 5/8" arbors. The 6" wheels have a 1" arbor hole with bushings for 7/8", 3/4", 5/8" and 1/2" arbors.

I recently placed my first order after finding you on the web while looking for grinding wheels. I am a customer for life. Here's why. My first order was a simple white grinding wheel for a "normal joe's shop". When I received the wrong wheel (150 grit instead of the ordered 100 grit) I called and without hesitation or the 3rd degree another wheel was sent off. No questioning of my integrity, intelligence or honor. Simply "I am sorry, we'll send the correct wheel off immediately..." The right thing was done by a neat guy. I was treated like an adult. Unbelievable in this day and age...proper...and priceless. Price, performance, responsiveness and customer service par excel-lance. 6-Stars! All my sharpening orders, albeit small shop orders, will now be with you. Promote you I will.
