Tube Packaged Black and Decker RT1018 36 piece 15/16 inch Emery Cutoff
Wheels. These are very similar to Dremel 409 cut-off wheels. Use with

inch Screw Mandrel which is not included. 0.025 inch thick. Use with

rotary tools. Made in USA.

In-Excess had them for 0.80 GBP per tub but I did not buy enough tubs

they were in stock. Or a similar product say 20 to 36 in a tub, not the
expensive half dozen and a mandrel which are commonly available in model
shops. To cut the steel of an equipment case for a larger pannel switch,

whatever, takes 3 or 4 of them for one job.

wrong tool for the job...

Such a job a couple of months back with 2mm thick steel. It would take a
windy nibbler to attack that panel in place populated with everything else
around it - colateral damage from the vibration ?. An hour job each side ,
to clear the panel and then to mill out , alternatively, so a Dremmel and 4
discs expended is very much the tool of choice there.
