Thin abrasive cut off wheels

Thin abrasive cut off wheels

Hi all,

we have some ACM cut off machines running in our shop (https://www.engnetglobal.com/c/f.aspx/ACM013). The company stopped a while ago and we had a steady supply for cutoff wheels (resinoid type abrasive). The cut off wheels measured: 4'' with a hole of 0.5'' and a thickness of 0.002''.
I remember there were suppliers in Idaho, USA who could offer these. In europe the prices are ridiculous.

Any experiences with thin resinoid cut off wheels and where to get them?

very doubtful about the thickness being .002"

I use the Avanti Pro from Home depot and they last as long as the Dewalt cutting disks do.

and a thickness of 0.002''.

0.002" is half the thickness of a piece of copy paper.
