easier deflashing?

Postby tjh0188 » Mon Jan 28, 2013 3:41 am

anyone ever tried to deflash a disc using a bench grinder with a cloth polishing wheel on it? seems like it might work as long as you don't try to rush it and get the disc real hot from friction.

Should work, but as you said, be careful. I just use asphalt :P

High grit number sanding paper is easy enough too without an access to machinery. Say 800 and above.
Flat shots need running on the center line of the tee and planting each step on the center line. Anhyzer needs running from rear right to front left with the plant step hitting the ground to the left of the line you're running on. Hyzer is the mirror of that.

I just use 120ish grit sandpaper, imo using a blade or machine is just overkill and has a greater chance to wreck your disc than it does to save you time.

Every disc I've ever owned with significant flash has been shorter and more overstable before removal. YMMV.

This will give you a more uniformed deflashing. I tape a piece of sandpaper to a table top and then tape a couple fingers to the disc and then move the disc in a circular motion. I use 200 grit though.

I should add that for a coarse flash i start gently with lower grit paper and 120 is the heaviest i'd touch but at first i started with what i had available 80 and that is accident prone.

200 sounds like a nice happy medium. Finish with 1000 grit! Lol

I go the bradly walker approach, unless it's a used disc. Then I use sandpaper.
