    Our CBN wheels production run

    We've finished 9-month testing of our CBN wheels, and the first production batch will be in our stock by mid September 2019. We joke in my team that the testing took as long as a pregnancy term

    Our all-aluminium CBN wheels run with tap water on all slow wet grinders with 12 mm shaft that take 250 mm wheel: Tormek, Scheppach, Jet, Record, Grizzly, Triton, Elmos, Saber etc.

    I've added specifications and info to our website
    CBN Grinding Wheels for Tormek and slow wet grinders >>

    I aim at giving Australians and New Zealanders the best quality CBN wheels at a price lower than the Tormek SG stone wheel. Being that affordable, there is no reason why anyone can't use them on their Tormek.

    We are the only in the world who makes unique Tormek-ready Round-edge CBN wheel for grinding both curved and straight blades.





    Of course, we make the conventional square-edge wheels as well

    The September batch of our CBN wheels has been shipped out, thank you everyone.
    Distribution by countries:
    41% bought by Australia
    7% bought by New Zealand
    22% bought by Europe, UK & Ireland
    30% bought by USA

    Current Sydney stock:
    Round-edge #1000 - sold out; next production run in October.
    Round-edge #400 - 1 in stock
    Square-edge #400 - in stock
    Square edge #160 - in stock
    Square edge #80 - in stock

    The CBN wheels are available on our website Knife Grinders and eBay (eBay by $25 more because of their fees).
    We've decided to keep the postage same for Australia and New Zealand, and flat for all countries world-wide.
    Because of that, we make 0 profit when shipping to New Zealand and overseas to the Zone 8, e.g. to Finland, Austria, Norway, South America etc. - but this is my vision of being fair to each our customer.

    As promised, we price our CBN wheels even a tad less than the Tormek SG stone wheel, despite all the CBN advantages over the stone. Our wheels cost only 63% of the price of the Tormek diamond wheel, despite the CBN being more expensive than synthetic diamonds. Speaking of the pricing, the diamond grinding wheels should be cheaper than CBN because of lower production cost. But market does not work this way, it exploits that people commonly think of diamonds as of higher value.

    But our approach is different, we are different because we are not retailers, we fabricate and sell only what we use ourselves in our sharpening workshop. Our approach is fair dinkum fair go - there is no reason why you should not have our CBN wheel on your Tormek or other brand slow wet grinder. You pay less than for the stone SG or SB wheel, but get the grinding wheel that lasts times longer and you never have to true, suitable for all knife and tool steels.

    Feedback coming on our CBN wheels is very rewarding. This project took me months and months of efforts and painstaking trials, rejects after rejects and $$$, but I continued against the odds, because I knew the wet slow grinder sharpeners need someone deliver these wheels affordable and quality, because the CBN wheels, and especially our round-edge wheel, are the single biggest advance in sharpening in a very long time.

    A customer from Copenhagen using our CBN wheels in knife sharpening has shared his excellent sharpness BESS scores: "I've had my first run with the #80 and #160 wheels. They work great. Specially the #80 wheel was good for re-beveling blades. Look at the attached images."
