Can it be used on rounded off bolts?

Asked by Bob July 5, 2017

Answers

The grinding surface is not the far end. Since the barrel side is the grinding edge, I would say, NO. Unless you have a proper mounting and drive system to allow you to get the cutting edge onto the bolt, you would run a high risk of shattering the cutting tool. Even an attempt to true the flat sides of a bolt head would be dangerous and no rotary tool will outdo a file in this case. You may need a bolt extractor for the rounded head.

can this be used to enlarge a hole in thin stainless steel panel for new ignition key

Yes, but it would be easier and quicker if you used a conical shaped one.

What rpm is this rated for? The packaging doesn't say and the Bosch website doesn't say.

This is a review of the Bosch Oxide grinding point cylinder. This is a aluminum oxide grinding for use in 1/4" chuck type electric or air grinders. However it could also be used in a drill. Since most grinders ( air or electric ) are in the 10,000 rpm range it would work okay in a high speed drill around 2000 rpm range especially if the material is soft.. Please remember not to hold or put to much pressure against the side of the grinding drum as it can cause excessive kick back. The grinder is mainly used with steel and could be used with wood but would cause burning to the wood material due to the high speed. These should not be used with aluminum. The aluminum oxide material will fill up the stone type grinder with melted aluminum material and will be extremely hard to remove rendering the bit useless. Remember to use light pressure and let the speed or RPM do the work.

My small collection of metal grinding points are all made by Bosch and I have found them to be good quality and effective at removing material. I don’t use grinding points all the time so I always use them in my cordless drill which is well within the maximum operating speed of 22,000 RPM. Using a faster rated die grinder would be more efficient though. This cylinder shape is very handy for enlarging existing holes in metal.

Bosch Aluminum Oxide Grinding Point Cylinder is 1-1/4" tall and 3.4" dia. The drill-shaft is 1/4" and should fit in most drills or die-grinders. This bit will not fit into standard rotary tools with 1/8" arbor. The sellers description indicate this grinder bit can be used for "fast removal" of many types of metal and is "Ideal" for grinding and shaping metal. I could not locate where either the seller or the manufacturer provided specifications, documentation or details for this abrasive bit. On the back-side of package, in the lower-right is an smallish, circular graphic indicating 22,000rpm (max?). Package indicates product made in USA.

The grinding bit does an OK job on light grinding needs using on light-gage metal. Grinding results are more on the side of cleaning up rough edges of thin gage metals. A design/grinding stone considered a "fine" grit material for light clean-up on metal edges, not for medium/heavier gage metals. OK considering price for bit - get what you pay for in a good sense.
