Finally set up my grinder

Recommended Posts

I had purchased a slow speed grinder and a pair of CBN wheels , but I’ve done so little lathe work recently, they just sat in the corner. They say a good shop project is a good way to get back into the swing of things, so here’s my new grinder setup.

Looks good. I have a couple of CBN wheels I need to install—as soon as I finish the chair I’m working on.

OK, now time to fire up that lathe B).  Looks like a Nova?

That's the plan!  Yes, it's a Nova 1624-44 .  Nice surprise gift from my wife many years ago.

I have them, and am very happy I do.  The only down side is that they are for HSS only.  You shouldn't use them for regular tool steel (high carbon) or other metals.
