I am looking for 6” bench grinder wheels. There are plenty of cheap ones on ebay (Draper and sivlerline), but I wondered if anyone knows a local British manufacture I could support? Seems like something that might still be made by someone in the UK.

I think you will be very lucky to find a UK manufacturer

NORTON were for years acknowledged as one of the "Industry Standard" suppliers in the UK

Try Abtec. They're in Cambridgeshire, so fairly local to you! They've got a pretty extensive range, too.

+1 for Abtec. I've never bought grinding wheels from them, but quite often abrasive belts & discs, and their service and prices are good. No idea where their stuff is manufactured though.

You could also try Buck & Hickman, they usually stock a wide range of Flexovit and Norton stones

Dont use the "S" word. i would be reluctant to stand near a"S" grinding wheel, going on the "quality" of their other products.

Silverline? If so I would tend to agree, one of the last grinder wheels I had from them was off centre :shock:

My bench grinder is a 5(ish) year old S*lverl*ne. I think the start cap has died as it will only start reluctantly after some persuasion.....

I also recommend Abtec for the wheels though.
