Cutting and grinding metal - September 6, 2011, 09:35 PM

Do they make anything for the dremel tool similar to the wheels for an angle grinder to get this job done? I have gotten most of the frame cleaned off, but the tabs for the center stand has very little playing room, so I can't really use my angle grinder. I bought some strong cutting wheels for the dremel, but they still take a long time to cut off a metal tab. And then there's the grinding and sanding smooth.

Thanks.

I used a Metal Cutoff wheel (This one

) to cut a titanium exhaust. They work with the EZ Lock Mandrel. Should be efficient for what you need, though you may go through a few wheels.

They sell fiber reenforced dremel cutoff discs that work reasonably well for small things, home depot has them.

but I can usually fit an angle grinder in most places

I need something more for grinding and sanding the excess metal smooth after the cut. Do they make anything for that?

for the dremel? eh.. nothing i consider worthwhile.

Id just use a flap disc and then a "scotch bright" (norton rapid strip) wheel in a angle grinder

I have that. I need something much smaller to fit in between the frame tubes. I'll probably give it a try with my angle grinder.

Agreed. They don't make any good wheels to sand/grind down metals.

Thanks Nubbs. I'll give it a shot with the angle grinder first. That sander is good for finishing though.

Dremel makes plenty of attachments for grinding metal down. If you're just trying to clean up an area after cutting something off, they make aluminum oxide bits in all kinds of shapes that you can use for that.
