    Why no Walter Brand? It's the best cut off disc for us Canadians.

    OUTFREAKINSTANDING!!! It seems that the faster it wears the faster it cuts... I have never thunk that ๐Ÿ˜…Iโ€™m anxiously waiting for the 14โ€ ferrous metal blade torture testโ˜บ๏ธ

    Project Farm, do you know of a high quality, SOLID cutting wheel that is 1 inch in diameter, or just a little bigger?I have a 2004 Toyota Corolla. The dim wit engineer that designed it decided the 2 nuts that hold the donut gasket together, on the exhaust manifold, just had to be WELDED down!There is a lip around each nut, on the end of the exhaust manifold. So I either need:1: A 1 inch cutting wheel, or just a little bigger, that can do some serious cutting. Using lots of wimpy Dremel cutting wheels does not work. Or2: A larger cutting wheel, which means I'll have to slice through that lip around the nut.And also some type of rotary tool that has a long and skinny end. A regular cordless drill is just too large to get down behind the engine.It has an exhaust leak. I got 2 headaches, then figured it out. So I have been driving with the windows rolled down.I could take it to Bell's Exhaust, for around $70. But I would REALLY like to cut those 2 nuts off, and replace them with 2 good nuts and bolts, and, of course, replace the donut gasket.Thank you much. Happy Thanksgiving.

    Maybe that diamond blade is meant to have more pressure put on it to work effectively?

    Test diesel fuel additives! Make sure to get opti-lube, power service, and howes in the test. See which ones keeps the fuel from gelling best with #1 and #2 fuel. Thanks.

    Good test. Too bad you didn't include the Cadillac standard: the Walter Zip disks. They are the best I've ever used, and extremely tough.

    Can you do this with 1/4" metal grinding wheels? Want to see what wheels work best when cutting metal for welding.

    Great Video. I would appreciate if you could direct me to any link that explains on the machine/table setup that is used in the video specifically for cutting threaded bars and bolts. Cheers !!!

    Another thing about thicker wheels is loss of accuracy, You know even after watching these videos you will not find a cheap disk in my garage. I have had a few China made disks explode and take flight across the shop. Thankfully I have never been hurt badly by any of these mishaps. I wear a quality pair of welding gloves, and my glasses at all times.

    Excellent video, sir! Personally, I really appreciate your tests. Best method of testing and all the important results are very well covered. Seems like Makita and Diablo both perform better than the expensive Metabo brand I've been using. I'm making a switch!

    I use a diamond wheel for everything unless I'm in a real hurry. It just does not wear. It has saved me a lot of money as I used to go thru 10 packs pretty quick. I can put a lot more force on it without worrying about breakage. It is fairly slow, tho.

    Regarding these cutting wheels and the audience you have, please put the word out on how dangerous these are with a grinder that has a regular on off vice dead man switch. Without the deadman switch my femoral artery would have been sliced open when it kicked out of my hands.

    I believe cut off wheels are the wheels where most care should be used to select a good wheel. They consume fast and they can be the most likely wheels to fail. So skimping on them is not the best idea. This video was very helpful in determining that Makita makes some excellent wheels. Not only is it a reputable brand and company but the wheel performance and cost per cut is actually quite competitive as well. Thanks!

    Thanks for the video, my co worker and I where just having this discussion on which would last the longest, well you just solved the debate! Surprised on the diamond wheel how slow it cut. Where from Michigan so we use alot of wheels from Praxair gas, but make many stops at Home Depot Lowes Menards etc, now we know. Great videos buddy, keep up the good work!

    marketing blurb aside diamond CANNOT be designed to cut steel, steel is a carbon sponge, soaks it up readily, diamond is a carbon source hence the steel pretty much drinks up the diamond wearing it out faster than steel would the other abrasives.love your method though, fair and accurate comparison

    Your test jig is worth building as a "poor mans" band saw for cutting steel rod and bar stock. I learn so much more from farmers than I could ever acquire in any given technical college. Between your channel and others like Musty's, Tarryl fixes all; I can darn near fix or build anything in my garage that life throws at me. Thank you!

    I love Harbor Freight, but I never had the courage to use their cutting wheels.
