    Going that thin is not going to happen.

    We grind HSS all day down to .032", so I am very familiar with thin parts.

    Stable?? Try grinding this stuff when it is 3" x 3" x 144" long and the customer wants it flat within .010".

    My guess is much smaller sections are nice to machine/grind?

    Inconel in the aged state is only around 40 rc or so. I am thinking CBN would not be a good option? Unless it would be a special grade CBN designed for this rc range?

    I have ground 718 inconel.

    You will want a wheel of the softer side, so lets say like a 46 grit H or so.

    Run plenty of coolant.

    You need to first look at what wheel speed you are running. On the larger machines you could swap out the pulleys to change the wheel speed. We have a Landis with a 30" wheel. Our machine has a...

    Do you need a robust machine to take heavy cuts.

    Or a fast light duty machine to lay carbon fiber.

    My cost for wheels is pretty good as I get special pricing due to the quantity I buy. I think a normal price from suppliers would be around $1,200 to $1,500 per wheel.

    Thanks for keeping up on IG.

    The bearings were comparable in size and material. The machines use the same oil.

    Table weights are similar, 21,000 lbs and 15,000 lbs
