Rated 5 out of 5 by from Goodbye old paint and rust I bought this as a bit of a gamble to help remove thick paint and rust from steel railings. Best new tech I've bought for years. Flat and very abrasive it removes smoothly, evenly and cleanly. Used it on old flaking paint on wood, and again it cuts prep time down by about 70%. It even helps to flatten damage on seasoned oak beams. Can't fault it. It seemed a bit expensive but after 2 hours of paint removal it's going well and already covered it's purchase cost.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pricey but worth it I got one of these after struggling to remove non-slip paint from a large area. My application was metal, I'm not sure how this would fare on hard woods. I wouldn't even try it on soft wood! I'll admit, it was experimenting when I first got this but it didn't disappoint. Considering I was essentially stripping paint masquerading as sandpaper, this thing didn't last very long in my application and I went away and got a huge box of them for half the price (I really did buy a lot though!). For a normal job however you won't better Screwfix's convenience so I am here writing the review! This thing removes paint and gently polishes metal and created a surface ideal for the first coat. It's quite gentle and adaptable to curved areas. My only issue is that by virtue of its thickness my angle grinder key was not deep enough to tighten the fittings up and I had to improvise.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Used on stainless steel Have used a few of these to remove paint from old filing cabinets etc. Does the job better than comparable ones from other stores.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great time saver!! Needed to remove several layers of masonry paint from the concrete window sills on my house as I wanted them back to the natural look but wasn't sure what to use. I bought this prep wheel along with some other sanding type discs for my angle grinder not really knowing what would work best. I chose to start with this preparation wheel and it worked brilliantly, just flicked the paint off with no damage to the sills and actually left a vey smooth finish. They do wear quite quickly especially if you have to apply a bit more pressure so I have had to buy a couple more to finish the job but they do what I require so it's a worthwhile purchase.

my angle grinder spanner wont reach deep enough into the wheel to tighten properly (only one point makes contact), am i missing something, I have flipped the nut both ways

Asked by: alphabravo
Hi alphabravo, Our warehouse staff have advised that the internal depth of this wheel is approximately 18mm and so it is possible that it could be difficult to get the pins on the pin spanner in the holes on the disc fixing nut on some grinders although at the time of writing none of the product reviewers have mentioned this. Tilting the pin spanner should help. Thanks for using Screwfix Q&A. JT

Would this work on large flat surfaces?

Would this work to clean large flat surfaces like a painted concrete floor or brick wall? Or would a cup make a better contact area with the surface?
Asked by: MartinKS
Hello MartinKS, Every installation/usage is different due to the varying circumstances of the site and environment. Therefore we advise that you contact a local tradesperson who will be able to view and assess your particular requirements. They will be able to provide further advice for the installation/usage of the preperation wheel. Thank you for using Q&A.

Does this require a nylon backing pad?

Asked by: manager64
If you look closely at the picture, there's an integrated backing pad.
