    Grinding wheel recommendations?

    Its time to replace my medium (60-80 grit) 8x1 grinding wheel on one of my bench grinders. I mostly grind steel welds with it. I know, a better welder should not have to grind welds, but this is a finished product and has to be blended smooth.

    I want a good balanced wheel that will last, but reasonably priced. I see brands listed for $20-200. I have a Dayton and a Baldor grinders that do a good job so I dont want just a cheap wheel.

    What brands and vendors do you recommend?

    Thank you for your input.

    The last wheels I bought were from Enco.
    IIRC they were TruMax wheels. They are
    still working after several years of moderate
    use, so Im thinking theyre good.
    Now that Enco is gone I will probably get
    wheels from MSC when a free shipping
    and 15% off when ordering $100 or more
    type deal comes around. Ill just have to
    wait until I need $100 worth of stuff,
    Machine shop I worked in used Norton
    wheels, with few exceptions.

    The Norton green is rated for 3150 rpms, my Dayton is 3450 rpms. I see other wheels rated above 3450 rpms, but still trying to figure out which one.

    Ideas?
