I have a old Darex M-3 drill grinder but no grinding wheel. On the Darex web site they list a borazon wheel for $209.00. This is way out of my budget. I am not a heavy user of the tool. Is their any other wheel that will work? In what grit and from what source?

The M3 I have is mounted on a Baldor 8" grinder. Using the wheels that came with Baldor. Try any bench grinder wheel that fits and is not too hard and close in grit size. Will look at mine if you want.

Its a 60 grit silicon carbide wheel, could not find specs for hardness.
Good luck

I have one and still using OEM wheel, but it's a 6" white stone, fine grit wheel.
