Rated 5 out of 5Â by Davejo01 Surface prep wheel performance
I have just used these to strip back to bare wood the facia and soffet boards on a Victorian house. These were without doubt the dogs for quickly removing multiple layers of old paint ( I can clear 2m of straight run in about 11/2 mins) leaving the surface ready for painting and did not deeply scour the wood unlike a conventional sanding disk.The downside is I got through one disk every 8m of run so it works out about a pound a meter ( plus electric / tooling cost).
Recommended for fast paint removal on wood.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by Marcel They work well but don't last
They strip paint well, leaving the metal underneath undamaged. But they are more expensive than the 3M Strip and Clean discs sold elsewhere....and they don't last as long, maybe 30% less durable.
I was able to strip 5 layers of thin paint off a car panel, area around 2 square feet, before the disc was worn through.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by bill2602 disappointed
I bought this due to the reviews
When I started to use it
It was off balance
Once it had a bit of use
It leveled out
But within half hour of use it was worn out
I stopped using it as a piece shot off and hit me in the stomach
Came quite sore
Wouldn't buy another one Or recommend it its just not robust enough

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Frogeye Excellent restoration tool
Whereas wire brushes tend to polish rust, this disc removes it and without clogging. Costs a little more but very satisfyingly effective.
