    Flap discs

    I have found that flap discs are definitely the best at removing the weld bead without gouging the surrounding surface. I have been using the discs with great success from the ebay store "http://stores.ebay.com/Lehigh-Valley-Abrasives".

    The best thing for body tacks and light seam weld grinding is the 3M roloc system for air grinders. The system that we use on our race cars is a 90deg air grinder and 1 1/2 up to 3 inc roll lock sanding discs. They also have scotch brite pads and a number of other abrasives for that system.

    Way cool and way precise so you are not hitting the material with a monster 4 1/2 grinding wheel.

    Do a google search on roloc for places that sell near you.

    try it, you will be hooked

    after i tryed my first 1 i wonderd how i ever servived without them. i got 1 at wal-mart to see if they were werth spending the $$$ on. lets just say that i was on e-bay that night buying a 10 pack and went back later for a 50 pack. shortly after that i bought an extra 4 1/2" grinder so it was always loaded and ready for use
    they will take a weld bead down to smooth as a babby's bottem in no time and all with 1 tool.

    Flapper Wheels

    What we are calling flapper wheels are a bunch of heavy sand paper pieces cut and epoxy glued to a back plate that will flex and so when you see one in person you will know that it is the right product.

    I use the Walter Enduro Flex 7" and they really work great. One thing that everyone should be cautious of when the pads get worn the outside edge gets exposed and it becomes very easy to catch the edge of the plastic on a corner or the edge of a vise or something like that and if it does it can really send ya. I got hit in the chest one time with the backside of my Makita grinder and broke some ribs. Lucky for me I wasn't on a scafolding or something. I'm glad that I didn't get hit with the disk! As always be safe!

    Are those orange discs I see on tv, especially american chopper, flapper wheels? Either way, who makes those things?

    Does anyone have any hand held methods of cutting sheet metal up to 1/8" thick that work well?
