New Texturing Idea with Micro Fiber Separating Disc

Textured Ring Header

Playing around with my Micro Fiber Separating Disc today and experimenting with texturing, instead of just cutting, sanding, and grinding. I am so digging this wheel. It is super thin, (0.3mm) flexible, and durable.

If anyone has tried the Super Thin Separating Discs, they are fragile and break fairly easy. I still use them, but less and less now that I have these new reinforced ones.

Like I said earlier, the Reinforced Micro Fiber Wheels will cut, sand, grind, and texture. I used the side of the wheel, something I don’t do with the Super Thin Discs due to breakage, to add a nice texture on the ring here. (the pic doesn’t do it justice)

After I textured the ring, I added a bright cut to the edge with a polished Flat Graver.

    Very cool! Can you show us how to actually use it to cut with? I’ve used one and there are a lot of sparks, I thought I was doing it wrong.

    Can you show us how you made the bright edge?
    Thanks

    How long does a disc last? 120$ for 100 is spendy consumable for the bench…..

      Renee, They last quite a while. I think you can order in smaller quantities through Rio Grande, Stuller, Gesswein, or some of the other tool companies. I put a link so the info was there, but Amazon doesn’t sell in smaller numbers. The smaller packs are more like $21-$30 for a 10 pack.

        Yes, on Riogrande they are $33.50 for a pack of 12 – quite a bit more per disc than Amazon…
