I probably make, grind, shape, heat treat and sharpen more plane irons than anyone involved with this forum. I’ve tried about all the different grinding wheels out there, white, pink, blue, cut-off wheels and everything else I could find. The most effective wheels I’ve found are the standard gray wheels in the coarsest grit you can find, probably 36 or 24 grit. Keep your grinding wheels well conditioned by dressing with a diamond dresser any time the cutting action slows or begins to generate too much heat.

You didn’t say what grit of wheel you have or what technique you’re using. Technique is as important as dressing and the type of wheel.
