    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!

    Holy crap, I didnt know the metal/diamond type blades cut that much slower.. I have only used the metal blades, maybe time for a switch.

    Pointless to compare if blades width don't match.

    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!

    Love this channel and the tests. I am disappointed that the Sait brand cutting wheel was not tested as it seems like a great product.

    You have some great video's, and this one saved me time and money. I think Dewalt has some great products but i wanted something that cut through metal a little faster and the Diablo did the trick. I was originally questioning the diablo's thin disk compared to the dewalt, but it still cut faster. Also, i thought it was easier to cut a straight line with the diablo. Thanks!

    The Lennox would be the ultimate cut off disc to have in a service truck or home tool box. Always be able to finish the job.

    This would be interesting to see repeated with the only variable being around 10lbs of weight. Maybe some blades can be pushed harder than others and may wear less when pushed harder. Kind of like why you want metal chips when machining vs letting a cutter run without adequate chip load.

    You should test metabo hands down the best grinders and cutting wheels, flap disks ,cutting stones

    Great video, and very informative. Something that would be interesting to see would be the longer-term results of using these wheels -- say 3-4 cuts each. The reason being, the wheels that wore down faster will have less edge 'speed' as they cut through the material due to the reduced circumference. You did touch on the results of this factor... but my point is that if 'cutting fast' is one of the redeeming qualities of a wheel that wears fast, it may not be so true the more it wears down due to the lower edge speed. This is not a criticism, I'm just thinking out loud... I loved the effort to normalize all the tests with identical testing procedures. Nice job.

    You should do a video on ratchets and tool sets. I bought a hyper tough tool set and am unimpressed with the quality of the ratchets and sockets. Have broken several sockets and a ratchet out of the kit. I am looking for a cheap but nice set heard alot good things about kobalt and Stanley. What are your thoughts on tool sets. Im a mechanic and my tools do see some abuse as such as breaker bars and such .

    I know the HF wheels suck but it is hard to argue with a 5 pack for $6.29
