    Consumables?

    I recently started ordering consumables on Amazon, been pretty happy so far. 10 decent flap wheels for $24 vs $12 ea locally. \n\nhttps://www.amazon.com/dp/B01N9H9KG9...91812054244-20\n\nMaybe not *quite* as good as the $12 ones, but waaaay better than the HF or other cheap ones. \n\nI also prefer these to a hard grinding wheel\n\nhttps://www.amazon.com/dp/B06X91H89M...91812054244-20\n\nThose are OK, but I\'d like to find something that lasts a little longer. \n\nFor cut off disc\'s I\'m fine with HF, or the diamond coated wheels, not quite as fast as a normal cut off disc but less mess.

    I use those benchmark abrasives flat wheels too. Not much beats a hard wheel for longevity though, haha!

        Those a pretty decent prices, maybe I'll try them next time around.

        We used those "cubitron" line sanding disc's at my old work, and they are worth the money, they last a long ass time. I didn't know they made a flap disc though.

          I have ordered benchmark before. I like them compared to the Hf ones. I have not tried anything else.

            Roark supply the last few years. Stock up on abrasives once a year around the holidays when they have a sale. PBB 10% off code as well

            Hopefully they will come here and support the forum.

                I went ahead and bought 2 packs on amazon to get the free shipping, Thanks! I'll give them a try.

                My normal go to is Lehigh Valley Abrasives which I heard about on Pirate many years ago.

                They have been the best value for me. They have Metabo slicer cutoff wheels for just over a buck and I buy 50 flappers at a time normally.

                  I am a flap wheel snob, I pretty much only use walter enduro-flex . I'm not as picky about cut off wheels and hard wheels but I do like metabo, sait and pferd wheels.

                    This my go to for sanding / grinding air tool. It uses 3M twist lock flapper pads in verifiable grit as well as scotch-brite pads. I don’t use it for heavy grinding but I don’t do much of that anyway and I have a shit ton of 4 1/2” grinders and a 7” for that. Most of my 4 1/2” grinders are setup with cutoff, sanding pads and wire wheels.
