I really like your video's every week I am 70, have been stick and ox acety welding since high school I bought a used lincoln square wave 255 and am learning to tig. I mess up electrodes and need a cheaper way to sharpen them The sharpeners I find on The Net are above my price range , I have seen the spinner holder and wondered what kind of stone to put on my dedicated tig bench grinder.


A diamond wheel is best but not completely necessary.

a fine grinding wheel ...Something about 80-120 grit will work fine ...especially if you chuck it up in a drill motor to spin it...or the stilo tig you mentioned.
