Grinding stainless, cross contamination

Postby PPD » Sun Oct 07, 2018 4:00 pm

Recently cut a couple stainless steel signs for outside, rained a few times and started to rust around all the cut edges. I didn't use different pads and or disc when I cleaned up all the edges so I assume it got some regular steel imbedded causing the issue.

Anyone have this trouble? What did you do to fix this problem?

Thanks in advance

Yep, you can not use any disc that has been used on mild steel on stainless. They make flap wheels specifically for steel, aluminum and stainless use.
