Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by MachineDesignEngineer Avanti just didn't do a very good job replicating the name brand stripping wheel HD use to carry.
First off, I have to say that in general abrasive impregnated nylon pads like these do a very good job of removing paint and rust from metal with out removing the base material. These pads do work. With that said, this brand is lacking in the longevity department. My guys go through 2 to 3 time more of these discs than they used to with the Norton rapid strip brand Home Depot use to carry. That might be acceptable if they cost 2 to 3 times less, but they don't. They're about the same. You should purchase these if you are doing small projects sporatically, but if you get into large projects or commercial work you should seek out their old supplier.

I bought two to strip the paint on my deck. Though it did the job to stip the paint by using it on my angle grinder, it is burned out quickly. The two can only be used to finish two 12-ft deck boards.

Idk if the Home Depot representative sold me the wrong product for my project but it felt apart in the first 2 minutes in using it. I wanted to strip the paint of my cellar door. As soon I started using it with my grinder it just felt apart.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by frustrated only lasted a few minutes
disc worked well removing adhesive from a wooden floor, but only for about three minutes. I have used discs in the past and usually get 30-60 minutes use from them. This ends up being pretty expensive when a $10. tool only lasts 3 minutes.

Stripped rust off of 2ea 10ft pieces of steel. It was done. Little bits of abrasive material all over the floor. Recommend getting a backer pad and the consumable nylon discs vs. getting this thing. Or just shell out a little more and get a wire wheel or cup brush for your grinder.

Used 5 discs to strip 50 feet of 1x8 facia that had1 coat of latex primer covered by two coats latex acrylic. At $10/disc, that works out $1 per foot to strip.
Lousy economy, but they did a good job.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 3drios Cheap disc
The disk removed paint and rust with ease but lasted 20 minutes before the material on the disk was gone. I have used disks by 3 different companies and 2 were like this one. The Milwaukee brand last several months. That material was blue in color and didn't disintegrate so fast.

I used this wheel tonight to remove paint on the ends of 4 pieces of metal to prep for welding. Worked well while it lasted but didn't even get thru all 4 pieces. Won't buy them again.
