NEED HELP WITH WIRE WHEELS FOR DRILLS

Recommended Posts

I need some information...I am doing some cold casting, which is adding metal powders to resin....when they cure, and are lightly abraded, the metal shines....it's great looking but the only advise I've had so far is to use steel wool....I am in the process of doing many castings and just cannot do them by hand....

a jeweler suggested some 3m Radial Bristle Discs....I bought some to use with my Foredom but they just don't cut it...too soft..besides, they are just too small...I need something that will fit on a drill or bench grinder....but it's hard to know excatly what to get...

I would say that this process is similar to removing a thin layer of paint to get enough resin off that the metal shines through...so what exactly am I looking for when searching for wire wheels? there are so many...

thanks in advance

I think I understand your question. I would go to the local store and feel them. They make all sorts of different stiffness brushes. I bought some cheap ones at Menards for both my drill and grinder and they work great. I am not sure how they rate the stiffness of them.
