Flap wheels,

Where is the best / cheapest place to get them from?

What grit is best for finishing welds, removing paint etc?

How fast do they wear out?

I haven't used them before but will need to soon so any advice would be great...

Thanks.

I get my abrasives from Axminster Power Tool Centre, and they do Zirconium Flap Discs 125mm for about £4 each. Dont know if this is cheap as we get a lot of stuff from them, but they do work, if its any help. Theres always Screwfix and Machine Mart to try as well.

toolstation.com is really good. always super quick delivery (and free delivery if you order £40 of stuff).

flap disks wont 'dress' welds, you'll need a normal grinding disk for that.

if you want to remove paint, get a wire brush disk, much more effective :)
