I seem to recall an article refering to the use of a cheap (Aldi I think) diamond disc, intended for use on an angle grinder, being used on a double ended grinder for tool sharpening. Does anyone know in which issue this apopeared?

Roger, have a look at 6" lapidary diamond discs on ebay, they come in grits from 250 to 4000 etc, 4 1/2" angle grinder discs are quite limited in the grit range available.

I am, I believe, the author of the author of the article you are searching for. It was entitled " Re-purposing on old bench grinder" and I think It was published during 2016.There was also a follow up article published a little later entitled "Further modifications to an old bench grinder", I have spent a good part of the day unsuccessfully trying to find my copy of the article in order to give you an exact reference to the articles. I am also having trouble viewing the MEW digital archive so this provided no help.

There is a short write up of the project on my website, see:


If I can be of any further assistance please send me a pm.
