I'm sure the original design had the same strange compound. The imports
typically don't modify the design, just crap it up.
I would be happy to collect ways to use this tool grinder. I'm very new to
using mine so would be in the role of editor.
I know Rod found the correct kind of wheel for HSS. Good upgrade that I plan

Another nice example of smart thinking well presented. I very well may
adopt this for my own grinder.
As a side note this grinder largely copies well known American makes right
down to the Square or compound as you call it. So the slightly useless
square can't really be blamed on the Chinese.
You might want to consider expanding upon this article a bit and focus it on
use of the grinder. Make it a living article that expands as you come up
with new fixtures and tools.
Finally you should consider looking for a wheel to grind conventional tool
steel. I know they can be found but it isn't easy.
