Re: Aluminum build up on grinders

yeah, grocery stores sell blocks of paraffin for canning purposes, they work great for disk/belt sanders too just a touch on the running abrasive and it lasts a lot longer, not messy... just watch for buildup, it can burn in the disc guards.

most abrasive supply houses sell cardboard tube sticks of wax too for grinders/sanders, stays cleaner, just grinds away the cardboard as you use it...

CONFIDENCE: that feeling you get just before you realize the mess you got yourself into...
