Bench & Pedestal Grinding Wheels
Bench and pedestal grinding wheels shape and debur metal workpieces and sharpen tools. They're generally used when the workpiece is small enough to be held in the hand or easily supported and when more precise grinding or sharpening is required than could be obtained using an angle grinder. Straight (Type 1) grinding wheels are the same thickness across the surface of the wheel. Grinding wheels are made of compressed abrasive grains held together with a vitrified bonding agent that combine to determine the material compatibility and durability of the wheel.
