An abrasive cutoff disk is similar to a grinding wheel, and exposes new grit as it wears. Downside to these is that they wear quickly.tonyc56 said:Hey Guys, I never understood the difference and what application should one use over the other.
Abrasive wheels will cut harder metals like cast iron. The blades are thin and will make radius cuts better. They are also cheaper.so why would one use an abrasive cut off wheel if a carbide blade last longer and cuts much cleaner?
