can I use 6" grinding wheels on a 8" grinder.I have wire brush on 1 side and a fine 6" wheel on the other side.it seem to vibrate more then my old smaller grinder.I like the bigger more powerful grinder ,it comes up to speed quickly and won't bog down when wire brushing .I have a heavy metal stand with lots of weight on it.

Sure You can ,,,,,You'll just have a little less access to get in certain spots on what You're grinding /polishing .

I put a cheap 6"wheel on it and it vibrates,it didn't with the 8" wheels it cam with.will it always vibrate with a smaller wheel ,or do I have a out of balance wheel.I removed the wheel guards ,all I use this grinder for wire brushing dirty threads or sharpening drill bits.I mite buy a better wheel 6" wheel,or should I get a 8" fine wheel ?.I have another grinder just like it ,but retained the 8" course wheels for grinding metal.when you shut off these grinders with big wheels on it ,it take 3.5 mins for it to stop spinning.
