  • Grinding Tools

    Hi,

    I'm trying to clean up my Railing Project I posted about before. Here is the basic look:


    My problem is now where those Collars on the polls are welded are impossible to fit my angle grinder in so i can clean them up.

    Does anyone know of some good Grinding tools that would be able to fit between the Railings (it's about a 3.75" gap).

    Thanks!!!

    I use Rat Tail Files, they work great, and lave just the right concave surface. Like grinding...the better you weld...the less you file..

      Use a die grinder.

        Try a Dynafile, or one of its clones, in either electric or pneumatic.

          A die grinder with carbide burr will dress the weld down. Once you have it shaped, you can use those little sand paper cartridge rolls to really slick it up if you desire. I'm not positive just what they are called, but they are about the size of a cigarette and stick onto an arbor on the die grinder. I use this method on bed frames where I can't get to with a flap disk. The hand file also works but I sorta prefer the fast easy method.

                I beleive the carbide burr in a die grinder would be your best bet. I have seen them at ace and true value Menards rural king. Just make sure that it is carbide I tried using on that wasn't, and it ate it up instantly..oops.

                    Try the Dynafile or one of its clones. It will get into all the areas you want it for and do a much easier job of it than burrs. Belts are cheap and easy to swap out.
