  • aluminum wheel stripping?

    What is the best abrasive/tool to use on an air tools to smooth or remove paint in tight areas found on aluminum alloy wheels? Preferably with variable grits.

    I have a method of machining the flat surface of the wheel very quickly but the interior angles are difficult to smooth and sand to a paintable surface quickly. I have buffs and polishers of different shapes but I really need a tool that can form to any shape and have variable grits avaluable (reach tight areas). Thanks for any input!

    Have you considered a die grinder? It holds a 1/4" shank. They come in straight, 45* and 90* versions.

      I have diegrinders but have not found a good end brush that works well for my application.

          Build a PA-Blaster and run it at about 60-psi (to be gentle on the aluminum) DONE !

          Best part is you make it from JUNK !
