    Weld Blending - Flap Disc? - Miller Welding Discussion Forums

    Flap wheels Hello, I use a lot of the Walter enduroflex flap wheels in either 60 or 80 grit, they are a little more expensive than some , but they last longer and give very good surface finishing , have to be careful how hard you lean on the grinder cause they can take welds off faster than a regular grinding wheel. the plastic backing can be shaved or trimmed to get the maximum use out of the
