Have any of you had this problem? Many years ago I acquired a
"string" of Mizzy "heatless" grinding wheels, 3/4" in diameter. I
have used these for over 25 years without a single problem; I've
ground heavily and worn down each and every wheel until it's a mere
nub. A couple of years ago I was beginning to run out of these, so I
ordered a lot from a supplier. When I finally ran out of the old
wheels, I began to use the new ones, but I found out quickly that
even the slightest pressure would often cause the wheels to
disintegrate and fly into pieces. So far, nnone of these wheels have
exhibited the great strength of the older wheels; in fact, they are
hardly usable by minimal standards at all. Not a single wheel has
lasted beyond the first levels of reduction, much less to the "nub"
I notified my supplier, who delivered a "return" package for the
product without even so much notifying me of that delivery. I
returned MOST of them, retaining a few for the interim, but they
never notified me of their results, much less the refund which showed
up on my on-line bank account statement. I was not very happy with
their handling of this problem.
I also went out on an internet hunt for the company that
manufactures the Mizzy line, without any success. Have any of you had
this problem with this particular product? Does anyone know who makes
the Mizzy heatless wheels and how to get a hold of them?
