This is a special Ruby grinding wheel originally specifically designed to fit directly onto Creusen grinders.
A great step forward in turning tool sharpening was taken when sharpening guru and innovative turner Mick O'Donnell came up with these ultimate fast, cool-cutting 'Ruby' grinding wheels. These wheels are sharper than either grey, white, or even pink aluminium oxide wheels and keep their shape better than any of these, including white wheels.
