        A:  I haven't used it for that, but the specs say it can be used to grind metal, so I don't see why not, but I would recommend spraying the wheel and the metal with some water to cool it. Diamonds are carbon and they will burn if they get hot enough. All the diamond saws I have used required water to cool the blades.

          Answer This Question

          A:  Dear dabmanjones, The 5/8 adapter that is installed does come out. Just tap it out and or push it out with your finger/thumb. Once out this will fit a 7/8 arbor. Please feel free to give us a call at our RIDGID customer support number at (877) 224-2969 so that we can help with this question or any others you may have.

            It makes granite dust
            Carved granite stone for about 10 hours with one wheel, works great.

              The Ridgid 4.5 inch Metal Grinding Diamond Wheel is made strong and as you can see in my pictures it still looks like new except for some left over metal from my grinding. I used it with and without the provided adapter on my grinders and both ways worked equally well. I like that the only mess comes from the metal your grinding and not the abrasives from a standard grinding wheel and I believe this will last me a long time.

              The RIDGID 4.5in Metal Grinding Diamond Wheel is a nice looking grinding disc. I have several of the abrasive types that shoot out lots of sparks and grinding dust along with the metal that is removed. This one "cuts like a new file." I was very impressed. Hardly any sparks and dust given off. It came with an adapter to allow it to fit the 5/8-11 threads on the grinder arbor. Using that would have raised the disc out of the guard. The 7/8" hole fit really nice in the Milwaukee grinder without the adapter, but the adapter will probably be useful with some of my other grinder wheels, so a nice addition. I put a point on an piece of 3/8 rebar. The photo shows the result after about 10 to 15 seconds of grinding. Using the old abrasive disc would have taken much more time. If this grinding wheel lasts at all it will be GREAT! That info will come with time.

              I used the wheel to gouge out a wood cabinet face to fit a sink top. The disk cut thru brads and kreg screw heads like they were butter. Needless to say the wood was no problem .

              Used this to grind tile adhesive and mortar off fireplace bricks during a fireplace “restoration”. Did the job and is still in great shape.

              Grinds through tough material
              I am using this grinding wheel to remove old mortar under some tile I removed. It does an excellent job, and the diamond abrasive is not wearing off after several hours of use.

              Using it on a floor is challenging because it wants to make grooves and valleys. So a bigger one would work better. Butt it works well when used for the correct task.
