Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Landshark Works - a little pricey.
These work good even in a cordless drill. I have used them in corded (AC) drills as well for more power but it's not necessary to have very high RPMs for these to do a good job. They work well for their intended use and I like to use them where it is possible instead of wire brush wheels. (Sometimes it's not good grinding away metal with metal.) They wear down fairly quick, but nothing ridiculous. You will get some good stripping or rust removal done with this. I just think that with manufacturing processes, they would be able to get these to retail for less than $10. I'm thinking they should come in at around $6-7.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by CarefulShopper Did not work on aluminum
My husband tried to remove flaking paint from an exterior aluminum cupola prior to repainting. It did not do the job. Glad I did not spend much money.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ToddPerk used to remove spray on insulation
I know this isn't what it was designed for but I used it to remove spray on insulation in my RV. Cut through it like butter and didn't clog up with insulation.

Works great to remove paint and decals from an old bicycle in preparation of painting and rebuilding it.

Fast, handy, long lasting on removing rust. Plan on using it more in the future

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Tarby My hopes were dashed, didn't perform
In great hopes this would speed things up vs. sanding my decks with an orbital sander. It didn't happen.
1. It was not easy to use. Difficult to control. Loud.
2. It lasted for about the equivalent of 4 to 5 disk sandpaper making it very expensive to use.
3. It chews up the wood, having to sand with orbital sander anyway.
4. Occasionally in small areas it gummed up a bit where there was thick & healthy paint.
1. In very worn, pealing, severely chipped areas it worked faster than sanding. On good surfaces it did not.
2. It started removal to get rid of difficult painted areas in order to sand down easier/faster with the sander. It got thru the layers of paint but chewed up the wood in order to do that.
Overall I would not use this again. It just didn't do the job as I was hoping/some say it would do. Changing sandpaper more often works a lot better; it is faster & quieter. Not to say cheaper too & no 2nd resanding is necessary. I have 1500 sqft to sand plus all the railing. I tried everything. Sanding is slow but it does the best job. I am still not finished sanding, about 15% to go.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DONDO Works Great!
I bought this to remove heavy scaling on some custom machined steel parts. The scale was black and thick, and a wire wheel barely touched it. This disk took it right off. I was amazed in how quickly it removed the scale without scratching the underlying metal, and without disintegrating the disk itself.

Strip Disc was just right for the job I was doing.
