    MDF kitchen units

    Also Spectric, some very high end kitchens are made in mfc. It's an ideal material for kitchen carcases which are basic boxes not chippendale reproductions at the end of the day.

    Actually very wrong though. Circumference is 3.142 times diameter, so a 6" wheel is actually a little over 18" in circumference not 28" and an 8" a little over 24"

    Where to buy grinder wheels ?
