I did see it George but shipping from US would be expensive. Thanks anyway.

If it's price then why not cast discretion to the winds and buy a cheap angle grinder and a box of thin cutting off disks?

My wee claim to fame or infamy,  is the use of one using worn disks but my purpose is to hollow grind inverted rear tool post blades.

Of course, the rounding off requires no further dressing after a bit of judicious fettling in lieu of filing the odd casting.

I already have some 1mm grinding discs ( my angle grinder is my most used tool) and have thought about it. I discarded the idea as it seemed ridiculous, maybe I should revisit it.

People like Aldi sell  holders for angle grinders at times. Whilst I use the disks on other t and c  grinders,  it should be possible to index and  control the depth of cut/grind with a stop.
