Why Having the Correct Abrasive Cutoff Wheel is Important
Why having the correct abrasive cutoff wheel is important for various reasons. The chop saw wheel is one of three important key pieces of the cut equation and each wheel grade will give you different cut finishes so you will want to try many different cutoff wheels until you get the finish that you’re happy with. For example: a cutoff wheel designed to cut mild steel may or may not cut a particular alloy due to its hardness. If does cut the alloy, the cut finish may not be what you want. So you will need to switch to a softer wheel to cut you’re alloy. A second example: if you’re looking to do a metallurgical cut, having a reinforced abrasive cutoff won’t give you that cut.
