  • Angle grinder wheels

    I found about 6 4 1/2 in grinding wheels for Masonry. I don't really need these and I am wondering if they will also work on grinding metal?????

    Savage those wheels will disintegrate about 5 seconds after touching metal. Found out when I got in a hurry at Lowe's and bought masonary instead of steel. But being me I figured it was a bad disk and put another one on and the same thing happened before I actually read on the disk what it was for.

    I have a hole in my garage door and in my drywall from flying debris. And a dent in my water heater and a bruised inner thigh.

        So I'm not the only one who has put one on with out realizing it, good to now I'm not the only one. By the way, I got pretty much the same results as you did. Dave

          Just in case your wondering concrete cutting wheels don't cut steel either. They fly apart but with much less force than the grinding wheels.
