I've bought a ten inch double pedestal grinder which has the usual grey wheels, what would be best for grinding woodturning chisels etc and where should I look. I should add I have a tormec but it's quite slow so I'm looking to do the main part of the grind before finishing it on the tormec.

I've used abtec and midland abrasives before, both have been good.

The most common wheel to use is white aluminium oxide, although some will opt for more expensive CBN wheels. I buy my grinder wheels from Abtec and I've never had any quality issues with their own unbranded cheapy stuff although they're a little on the soft side.

See if you can locate an industrial abrasive supplier. Talk to them about the kinds of tools and the steels (if you know) and they can get the wheels with the right bond and grit for your needs. They will likely be light grey but the colour doesn't matter.
