    The leather side is all cut to h-e-double hockey sticks.
    The side shown is likely salvageable, just the edges are messed up.
    I may be able to trim the edges or sand them round.

    Hopefully extend the life of my gouges.
    May find a spot in my restoration work as well.
    Have no intention of running it wet so bye bye warranty,,

    What speed is your grinder?

    3500 rpm sadly.
    so I may need to retool a spare furnace blower motor for this wheel. Slower rpm will help reduce grinder wear as well on the tools.

    I see Rikon has a low speed grinder put. It made my mind wander to making a grinder too. In theory single wheel, low speed should make for a good sharpener for chisels and drills bits. It you get the speed low you can set up a drip and wet/damp drip too. At 3500 it would be an awful mess.

    Ha, zactly where my mind wandered.
    As I was thinking about the speed, then a stand alone, 1 sided motor mount, then a drip pan for cooler, spark free grinding, it got me to either a furnace fan, or maybe a wall fan motor from work. We go through those like gang busters and they have a strong industrial motor on them. Advantage of a one sided dedicated unit is I can make some specific jigs up for what I’m sharpening on it.
