Bench Grinder and HSS?

Is it necessary to grind the woodturnings tool with a low speed grinder on Hi-Speed Steel?On the old tools that were just carbon steel it would take out the temper.What say you?? Itchy

***For the record*** Ive made hundreds of guitar bodies,never put one together and cant play a note.

bench grinder and HSS

Like said,just let the grinder do the job and and take your time.I have both high speed and 1700 rpm grinders.I use a 80 grit to shape it,then 100 to touch it up on both grinders.

God Bless all

I prefer slow speed 8" grinder with a 80 git wheel for shaping and 120 white wheel for keeping it sharp for then on.

Thanks guys,I only have a 5" wheeled grinder so I'll be looking for a nice 6-8"one.I guess C/L lol! Then maybe a wolverine set up for grinding.

Heat isn't going to damage HSS tools. Sorry, but that's a myth. An 8" grinder will do fine but if you're buying one then get a slow speed grinder. A 6" will put too much hollow grind on your tools, so definitely opt for an 8". Spend good money on good wheels as well. The ones that come on the grinders are junk for the most part.
