What is a disc cutter used for? This specialist power tool is made from a solid abrasive disc and is used for cutting hard materials such as ceramic tile, metal, concrete, and stone. It offers precise cutting while reducing construction time and energy consumption.
Is an angle grinder the same as a disc cutter? No, an angle grinder is used for rough cutting and grinding – essentially when precise grinding or cutting is not necessary. It is more versatile and has more uses than a disc cutter, which is a smaller cutting blade used for precision work.
There are four key uses for angle grinders:
Cutting: make cuts in metal, ceramic, and masonry
Grinding: smooth and remove excess materials,
Polishing: ideal for creating a polished finish on materials
Sanding: smooths the surface of metal and masonry
Can you cut wood with a disc cutter? The short answer is no. There are many downsides including safety concerns – the blade can bind or skip across wood which is dangerous to the person handling the tool and can result in serious injury.
