Life of Wire Wheels

Recommended Posts

Does removing and reversing the direction of a wire wheel extend the life of the wire wheel ?

Does the style of the wheel whether straight wires or knotted (twisted) wires matter or benefit from reversing directions ?

knotted wire wheels generally are for hand grinders, Crimped wire brushes are generally used on bend grinders, Cup wire wheels are dangerous on a bench grinder, just look at what happened to PPW Wilson.

The new style encapsulated brushes are ideal for bench grinders, do not throw wires and don't grab things outa your hand like other wire brushes.
