Louie Mills has them as well.

He brought two to Halrey's gathering in March.

 

I do not have Louie's email, but someone will post it.

Louie still has several sharpening wheels for sale as I bought one from him in July. Anyone interested will have to drive to Ann Arbor to pick up as they're too large/heavy to ship and would need to be crated or put on a pallet.

 

The wheel dimensions are 23.75" in diameter by 2" wide. Looks like a 5/8" round hole in the center. I am not sure of the grit, but I would guess it might be 1,000 grit.

 

Louie has an old RW grinder similar to this one on Ebay: 271265623918. Louie's grinder has a container for dripping water on the grinding wheel as it's being used. Here is an old RW grinder that was sold on Ebay: 330942260826

 

If anyone is interested, please PM me & I'll forward to Louie.

There is a blacksmith here in fitzwilliam nh (50 miles from Manchesterdrive it daily) who has one in its frame outside his shop. As an old timer I'm sure he is willing to take an offer. Great fella and you won't need to freight it across the globe!

Yes, I did. I just bought a wheel from Louie & he has more just sitting in his barn. I got a great price & figured I'd pass it on to whomever might be interested.

 

I'm sure Louie wouldn't mind selling them. I bought a 12" wheel for my Tormek grinder that was almost twice the cost of the price Louie sold me a large almost 24" wheel for.
