Many owners of the T-7 and Supergrind 2000 want to shape and sharpen exotic alloyed tools, which is exactly what this Tormek Blackstone Silicon grinding wheel was developed for. For high speed steel, large bevel surfaces (where grinding pressure is limited), and even touching up Tungsten Carbide, you can do no better than the combination of abrasive hardness, shape and grain size we’ve developed for this sharpening wheel. The small, sharp grains remove hard steel efficiently, even (as stated previously) at low grinding pressure. The 220-grit size will be familiar to anyone who’s used the original grindstone that came with their tool, but this can be altered to work like a 1,000-grit stone (using Tormek Stone Grader SP-650). It’s built to last, with the Blackstone Silicone offering exceptional durability. Please note: this is for your exotics and specialized sharpening. It does not offer faster steel removal on ordinary carbon steel. For that, you can utilize your original wheel. But for the specialized sharpening, this the one you want.
Keep your cutting tools and drill bits sharp using the SB-250 Blackstone Silicon grindstone from Tormek. This stone is designed to be used in Tormek's T-7 and SuperGrind 2000 sharpening systems, and its small, sharp grains are great for sharpening high speed steel and other exotic alloyed steels. The SB-250 has a grit size of 220 and measures 250 millimeters in diameter.
Designed to Remove Hard Steel Quickly Thanks to its sharp and relatively small grains, the SB-250 Blackstone Silicon grindstone removes hard steel quickly and efficiently, even at low grinding pressure. This is especially an advantage when you're shaping tools with a large bevel surface, such as planer blades and woodturning skews. Note that the stone does not offer faster steel removal on ordinary carbon steel.
Optimized for Tormek Sharpening Systems The SB-250 is designed to be used in Tormek's T-7 and SuperGrind 2000 sharpening systems, and its combination of abrasive hardness, shape, and grain size is well suited for these systems' low RPM.
Product Information The SB-250 Blackstone Silicon grindstone measures 250 millimeters in diameter and has a grit size of 220. It is exceptionally resistant to wear.
