On A Quest for the Perfect Flap Disc

Ceramic Hemp Flap Disc

When it comes to flap discs we have really seen a lot of improvements in recent years, on a never ending quest to find the perfect flap disc we might be pretty close. The new CS Unitec Plantex Sunfire Ceramic Flap Disc brings a lot of things together in a single package that can do a lot for a pretty reasonable price. For a Traditional Flap Wheel with 7/8” opening, commonly 40, 60 or 80 grit and fiberglass backing you’ll pay around $3 wheel. Still a terrific option but you’re not able to use the full wheel, messing around to change the wheel each time, potentially breathing in fiberglass dust, having to pick between a better finish or more aggressive material removal.

18 New Grinders Launching this Summer from Milwaukee Tools


It was not that long ago (about 2 years) Milwaukee Tools launched a full line of brand new 4.5” to 9” grinders and they are at it again. With 18 new grinder models just in the 4.5” to 6” category Milwaukee is serious about reclaiming a larger portion of this market. It looks as though the new Milwaukee grinders will replace the existing units with several key improvements including tool free accessory changing, improved internal electronics such as overload protection, soft start and Constant Power Technology. The other critical improvement everyone always wants to see is more power output, which is achieved through either a compact 11amp or 13amp motor. These new grinders will be released a few at a time between June and August.
