Default Benchmark Abrasives

https://www.benchmarkabrasives.com/

Just found this site the other day and thought I'd share. We go through quite a few flap wheels and cut off wheels at the Bears Den, so buying in bulk is a must.
10 pk of flap wheels for $16.50
25 pk of cut off wheels for $20.

I'll let you know how that hold up once I give them a try this weekend.

Thanks for the post gunny. I am sure the flapper wheels are doing great. How about the cut off wheels? I bought some cut off wheels on line a while ago and they did not last long.

Order placed on 8/31 and received on 9/9. So not the fastest processing and shipping, but all parts were received and as advertised.

Cost $124 including shipping for 40 sanding discs and 50 cut off wheels.

4 1/2" x 7/8 T29 Zirconia Sanding disc are performing well. I've been using one for past two weekends and haven't worn it out yet. well worth the $1.65 each paid.

Cut off wheels are a little thinner (.040) than the usual (.045) that I'm used to, but there is no performance or durability differences that I have noticed. Also well worth the $.80 each paid.

Hope this helps.
