    Cool

    I just bought 10 5" from ebay seller Lehigh-Valley and he had them to me in 2 day's, i should have ordered more as they were a good price. Sure beats 7+ bucks at wallymart. I even tried the local flea mart twice with no sucess, seems like they aren't there yet...Bob

    Default Lehigh Valley Flap Discs

    I have had great success with the Valley Discs. I find they last much longer than the Harbor Freight or Bullet Discs. They do not last quite as long as the Walter, but, I prefer to pay $1.72 for the Lehigh discs versus the $9.00 for the Walter. The Walter lasts at the most 50% longer. Below is the link;

    happy finishing!

    I use DeWalt. No they aren't cheap, but they cut fast and last me for weeks. I can thrash the harbor freight ones in less than an hour.

    i use dewalt for my 14" chop saw exclusively. they don't seem to load up as much and cut fast as well as seem to last a a bit longer than the other ones available at TSC anyway. but i have not looked for dewalt flap disks, didn't know they had them.
    thanks for the help

    Default try these

    we use a lot of walter, and they are good....but if your willing to try somthing different try a Norton Blaze. We've sampled 4 1/2"blaze flap discs and 7" sand discs, and they are worth the money. in my opinion!

    i think vally is an excellent option for the hobby guys to get the option to use some of the cooler tool's that we would otherwise not get to use at $9.00 a pop.
    i got my first flap disk at wally-world to try them out to see if i would like them. needless to say i loved them, but at $4.50 they were still getting expensive for playing. Vally was my next stop and they are excellent disks. maybe not a walter but definitely a quality flap disk. and at $2.60 each (shipping included) hard to pass up.
    you should be really happy with them.
