    The wheels that LMS sells for those tool post grinders are a crap shoot at best, you WILL need to balance and true them up.
    The shortest distance between two points is a circle of infinite diameter.

      Go with the air motor as shown. A Dremel with similar burr does wonders.

      If going into multi hundred production units, consider outsourcing, or CNC.

        I think the air grinder in the boring bar holder will do what you want to do.

          As with any grinding wheel.

          Go for the QCTP mounted small air (pencil) grinder, there are plenty of supplies for them. At work we have two types, the smaller takes 3 mm shank stuff and the biger 6 mm. All kinds of stones in different lengths, sizes, materials and hardness are available, we get them from a mold makers tool supply company, costs pennies each.
          Amount of experience is in direct proportion to the value of broken equipment.
