Our 3M™ General Purpose Cut-off Wheel is a durable, fast-cutting wheel useful for cutting autobody sheet metal, frame rails, exhaust pipes, clamps, and rusted bolts. Aluminum oxide grains are bonded together into a rigid wheel that cuts fast and can be used again and again. Designed for use on utility type cut-off tools. DO NOT USE TOOLS WITHOUT GUARDS.
Our 3M™ General Purpose Cut-off Wheel is constructed of aluminum oxide mineral abrasive, a popular choice among industrial professionals because of its fast cut-rate and long life. We chose this mineral because it is a tough, durable abrasive that self-fractures to expose fresh cutting edges in use, whereas traditional abrasives such as garnet quickly wear down with use. Due to its fast cut-rate, hardness, strength, and low heat retention, aluminum oxide mineral is widely used in all types of abrasives. Aluminum oxide is suitable for a wide variety of materials, including ferrous alloys. Abrasive cut-off wheels are typically used for cutting through metal, for example auto body or marine sheet metal, stainless steel tubing, exhaust pipes, clamps, propeller shafts, and rusted bolts. Cut-off wheels are attached to a cut-off tool (sold separately) and must always be used with a wheel guard for safety.
