I want to say you can pick up a cheapy one from like pep boys or autozone for around $20. You are talking about an air powered die grinder correct?

Depending on the space constraints you could toss the roll-loc attachment in a drill, or use a drill and wire wheel setup as an alternative.

Yeah, got the idea from this
. Tried a cheapo drill (1500 rpm) and it didn't work...I think it doesn't spin fast enough, not to mention heavy. I don't have an air tool, so I was looking at electric.

Ah, yeah electric might be a pita to track down. Especially one with variable speed. I think i have a 1/4 chuck harbor freight special, router we occasionally would use at night when we didnt want to piss the neighbors off with running the compressor. One speed though, kinda scary when we rigged it up with cut off wheels! Good luck man.

Just so you know, using any abrasive wheel or wire wheel on precision mating surfaces has a high chance of ruining them (esp on aluminum.) They will both remove metal, it’s the worst on 90 degree corners.

Carefull use of a razor blade will usually get it 99% of the time.

I thought the yellow roloc disc in the video is used because it's soft not to damage the aluminum. Tried the razor last time and it's a pain in the azz...had to use chemical gasket remover to make it even possible with the razor...then the chemical removed the black paint on the cover. There's got to be an easier way. Fairfax cycles said $20, so I'll probably just drop the cover off and let them have at it.
