CGW-Camel Grinding Wheels has introduced wire flap wheel drums with keyhole arbors. The new line includes abrasive nylon, stainless steel, and brass-plated wire options. All three types of wire flap wheel drums are available with 4- by 2.75- by 0.75-in. keyhole arbor, 4- by 2.75- by 5/8-11 hub, and 4- by 4- by 0.75-in. keyhole arbor.
The abrasive nylon flap wheel drums are made of flexible nylon abrasive filaments that allow work to be accomplished at lower speeds with lighter pressure for applications that require a drum with flexibility. They are available in 46 and 80 grit.
The high-temperature-resistant stainless steel wire flap wheel drums are made from 0.008-in.-thick stainless steel wire that does not leave an oxidizing deposit on work surfaces.
The brass-plated wire flap wheel drums are made from softer-than-standard wire designed not to scratch harder metals or create sparks. The drums are sold in 0.008- and 0.0120-in. thicknesses.
