Grinding & Cut-off Wheels
Grinding wheels remove protrusions from concrete floors or other materials. Smoothing down the surface removes snags, cuts or uneven bumps and gives the project a professional finish. Just like sanding tools for wood, grinder accessories feature different grits. You want to start with a low grit concrete or metal grinding wheel to remove large imperfections, then gradually work up to medium, fine and possibly ultra-fine grits to smooth out the material. Depending on your material, you can then apply a buffing and polishing wheel, which is usually compatible with your grinder, for a full shine.
To make a scoring cut or to chop off extra material, use cut-off wheels. These wheels are thinner than grinder discs and can make fine cuts. Since concrete and metal cut-off wheels are so thin, they can't take a great deal of force. Use cut-off discs only for cutting and grinding discs only for grinding. Make sure to protect yourself and the discs with suitable wheel guards and other polishing accessories
If you need to cut especially hard or treated metals, upgrade to a slicer wheel. These wheels are extra sharp and can take on even thick-gauge stainless steel. Check out the features on cutting discs to see which ones are burr-free. This keeps you from having to sand down extra bits after you're done cutting.
Grinding wheels improve the final look of your project. They work quickly so you can move on to the next phase with little effort. Stock up on a wide assortment of grinding and cutting wheels today to get the most out of your grinder.
