Wow.
Tedd's price on that grinder is $107.54

Don't those cut both ends of the ring simultaneously?

I took a sewing machine motor with foot control and mounted it to a plate, coupled to a diegrinder stone in a "pillow block". An old electrical cover of some sort was slit so half of it could be tweaked downward. This was then attached on an adjustable pedestalin a position where a ring could be laid upon it, and by tweaking the ring to the plate, one end could be carefully touched to the stone.

Perfect! Now I know what to do with that old sewing machining that has been laying around for 30 years unused!

Ball hone only to deglaze not a stone.
