We have a job to grind D-2 cyclinders. We have to grind the outside diameter and inside diameter. The ods are 7 1/2" dia. and the ids are 5 1/2" dia. The overalll length of the cyclinders are from 11" to 31" long. The tolerance on the id and od is +/-.001". Can anyone recommend the best way to grind these cyclinders? What wheel works best?
