Default Past vendor for cut off wheels & flap discs

Used to be a vendor that sold the discs in bulk. Doesn't appear to be a vendor anymore. Anybody have a link to their site?

Thanks, I ordered from him in the past. But was so long ago I didn't have the contact info any more. I bought so much, they lasted so long, I am finally running out.

It may only help a few people on here, but Ann Arbor Welding has really nice abrasives for very good prices. In the past I bought a lot from Heleta/Bullet Industries and they were alright. The Ann Arbor Welding stuff is a bit more expensive, but lasts twice as long so still ends up saving me money. I never tried Roark, but for the price I'd assume it's comparable to Heleta.

Dang, that is a good price. I can get them for around that from work. I'll check Friday since that's the only day I can work with school What kind of flaps you looking at? Flat, round bottom, grit? Type of abrasive ? You cutting Stainless Steel or just steel?

Yeah, I normaly get flap wheels for around $1.20 and cut offs for around $1. But thats what you get when you work for fastenal :) Oh, and a bag of 100 bolts for $1, vs $20 normal walk in would pay ;) You should all look for a part time job at Fastenal just for the savings!

I am currently using harbor freight abrasives and am happy with them. And they run pretty good sales on them also.

I was using their cutoff wheels for 4.5. Dewalt service center sells same size for $.25 more ea. It's worth it Imo.


I remember them being quicker when ordering though. Placed an order and it's been longer then I recall waiting.

Hi Everyone, my name is Tom Colthurst and its been well over a year since I posted in here. A LOT has happened. I used to run all the sales, marketing, and tradeshows for Roark Supply. They didn't want to do anymore trade shows or forums so I started my own company called www.grindtoolabrasives.com. It was a huge decision and we are looking for your support!

This just shows me how much they rape us every day, I'm sure they are not losing money on internal sales either.
