4 1/2 flap wheel disc

Been going through a lot of them recently any suggestions on ones that last longer or have better performance? Thanks.

I buy them in bulk from Aliexpress, 100 at a time. I only get about 1/2 the life out of them compared to locally sourced decent brand but they cost about 1/5 the price so im happy with them.

I gotta ask just what are you doing ??

They won`t last near as long as grinding discs if your doing heavy duty grinding .

Then some people do way to much grinding

Watch the latest welding tips and tricks.com video.

He mentioned a brand in it, I cant think of it, orange ones.

I see a lot of people on IG commenting on how good they work. I mean big fab shops, not just DIY garage guys.

Wyoming9- I buy the Lehigh Valley ones 200 at a time, and the Metabo 6 inch disks 200 at a time.

I might do too much grinding!
