    ...or slow down the speed.....they should only be doing well under 2000 for heavy grinding, I run mine at 1400 with 36 grit.

    Landlubber --what the hell is your avatar, I cant make out what it is , is it a woolly mammoth with a hat on near your bedroom window?

    I don't know what the hell that is.

    4 inch 16 grit 4000 RPM the skill is in your hand not the machine.

    16 grit is like self cleaning, like a mud tyre, it self cleans.

    ...Frosty, have a look here, the "real" Landlubber...poor bugger has no "real" boat, this is what happens when you only have a dinghy, no more ocean boats to play with....don't let this happen to you.

    I don't know what you are smoking but I would give it up if I were you.

    Im a sensative boy, I will be having night mares now after looking at those distorted figures.

    Change your avatar to a crankshaft or something nice, as long as its not a cute kitten or i'lle have to smash my lap top in.

    Just thought I should follow-up and say that the Zec is the deal. About twice as fast as regular 16 grit disc and no problems chopping up the surface - just hold it flat. One wheel did the whole job too so no lost time changing discs. I did follow with the 36 grit soft pad on buffer to finesse it a little. Not the tool for every grinding application but if you need aggressive material removal this is it. Thanks to all.

    Roy, this is the kind of disc designed for cutting relatively soft but abrasive materials like limestone or marble. I bought mine in a department store a few years ago. It came as a set of 3 different discs, the others for ceramic tiles and granite.

    You should have no problem buying such discs on Ebay.
