    That makes me nervous. Grinder discs rotate at a much lower rpm. A dremel or whatever rotate at a much faster rpm. Not sure the disc is safe at that speed. Sorry, not for me.

    I've done this - works well and certainly lasts longer than the bought ones.

    You could equally apply that comment to just about any activity involving tools.

    Certainly could but to stay on the subject, I'm applying that to these discs at the moment. By all means, go ahead and make and use them. I tend to suggest some heads up or warnings when I see something that makes my hair stand up. Having survived over 35 years as a mechanic without much damage at all, I tend to over think safety and what can happen if one doesn't pay attention. This will be my last reply.
