Flap discs are one of the most versatile grinder accessories in metal working. With a light hand you can lightly sand and polish an area then with some elbow grease, you have a metal removing machine. Flap discs do not wear out as fast as typical grinding wheels. As the disc wears it reveals a new piece of gritted sand paper behind it. Since discovering flap discs I tend not to use anything else for my metal grinding and sanding needs. They save time and last!
Diablo offers a variety of grits and styles of flap discs, but I have to say the rounded corner design of the Corner Edge flap disc is one of my favorites. It allows you to get into the corner of a joint to clean up the bead. While we were testing this disc we realized that you can actually cut metal with this disk. It is a beast for almost any application. You can see in the video how it cut and how long it lasted.
