Default UK source of these .6mm "Dremmel" thick cut off discs

On Sun, 23 Oct 2011 15:37:04 +0100, "N_Cook"

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 1/16
inch Screw Mandrel which is not included. 0.025 inch thick. Use with Dremel
rotary tools. Made in USA.

In-Excess had them for 0.80 GBP per tub but I did not buy enough tubs when
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, or
whatever, takes 3 or 4 of them for one job.

That sounds like a job for an oscillating saw (Fein, Festool,
Craftsman, Harbor Freight, etc). Just buy good blades - the Harbor
Freight blades are OK on wood but their metal-cutting blades are wimpy
at best.
