Home Depot carries replacements discs for the Wagner Painter Eater. The discs are located in the same section where the Paint Eaters are displayed. They are usually located on a shelf below the Wagner products in the paint department. Replacement discs run around $12.00 each.

Answer: 
The tool comes packaged with one disc. You will need to buy about 3 more discs to completely cover a 1 1/2 car garage (depending on the condition of the surface). The discs continue to function as they wear down, but for the best possible use of the tool you should change the discs periodically.

Answer: 
It is similar to a drill however I don't ever recall seeing a pad for a drill like the one on this tool. It is not a sandpaper style pad, it more closely resembles a scouring pad but of a different material. Kind of like a plastic coating over wire so something like that. It works very well on wood and iron and does not leave a gouge or scratches in the material you are stripping.

Answer: 
This tool is meant for removal of peeling paint. It leaves a semi-sanded surface ready for the application of your primer or paint. The disc is made of a very rough composite material and it lays flat against the surface you are sanding. The tool is much better the using a typical drill with a disc attachment, as it is much easier to handle.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This is a great tool! Everyone needs one of these for many home improvement projects! September 6, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by New favorite tool After spending some time scraping the shingle siding on our 1948 house, I thought there must be a better way. This is the better way by far, it eats the paint off without damaging the shingles. I found it's best used with basically no pressure, let the machine do the work, keeping it at a slight angle. I let it chatter over the shingles and make several passes. By keeping it moving I'm not heating up the paint so no clogging of the pad either. May 10, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great For Removing Paint I have a large wooden deck, stairs and landing. The paint eater worked great. It took of the paint and did not clog up like sand paper. August 16, 2016

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Wagner paint eater Great tool for prepping paint work on decks and on hoses or cottages May 10, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Makes painting an easier chore The hardest part of painting, for me, is the preparation. Removing chipped paint, sanding, scraping, washing, and all the rest are time consuming and the results sometimes still not smooth and ideal for more paint. With Paint Eater, life is better. Cracked, and chipped paint just goes away. The best approach I have found is to let the wheel do the work, and to not use excessive pressure or force. It is possible to remove some wood, and make gauges, but not likely if the tool is used correctly. The wheel may clog with paint chips and dust, but a tap or two will usually clear it. Wheel life seems to be good - I am still using the original, and replacements are reasonably priced. You don't have to go down to bare wood because the Paint Eater will smooth and taper edges quite easily, but the result looks even better when all of the old paint is gone. Be sure to wear eye protection and a dust mask. April 5, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good paint eater! This thing will eat through paint, however there are only two settings. Off and FULL BLAST, if I have a more precise project that needs exact scraping this would be difficult to use. If you have a surface that needs to go all out this is your product. June 23, 2013
