RE: [DML] Wolfhead wheel (stainless re-graining)



Travis, 
When I buy stainless in sheets like 4 x 8 it was bought already grained.
Then the tool was to be used to clean up any scars or marks that was made
during the processing or making the car.
I have an original air operated tool and head. Also have a few extra 80 grit
1 1/2" wide small belts to go on the wheel. There is a picture on my web
site accessory page at the bottom.
Hope this helps.

Subject: [DML] Wolfhead wheel (stainless re-graining)

I'm about to dive into stainless steel re-graining.  I'm now armed  
with a 1000 RPM pneumatic drill and a beater RF fender to practice  
on.  All I need is a Wolfhead wheel.  For those of you who have  
experience with these (or even an old Vonnegut wheel), could you help  
me fill in a blank or two?

1) What grit abrasive matches the factory grain? I've read where  
others have used 60 and 80 grit, but I've seen no consensus between  
these two.

2) What slashing pattern for the (aluminum oxide) abrasive is best:  
1/4 or 1/8 inch?

3) What width wheel to get: 1, 1.5, or 2 inch?  I'd assume 2 inches is  
a better choice since it covers more surface area... unless there a  
compelling reason to choose a narrower wheel?

I know from talking to G&P machinery that some combinations of the  
above may not be made, but I have too many variables to figure out the  
rest without some trial and error.  Any insight would be much- 
appreciated!

Many thanks!
Travis
