Yup, we've used up lots of discs where only the outer 3/4" or so was worn out--just depends on how you're using them. On wide flat surfaces like tanks or boxes you can often use the whole face but not always.

Still not worth trimming them though. Can't justify the time and you also end up with a disc that is smaller and has lower peripheral speed--they don't work nearly as well the second time around.



Flap wheel or flap disc? The former are good for fine finishing in tight quarters. A flap disc is used like a sanding disc. They'll remove a lot of material in hurry if you have the right grit. First pic is a flap wheel. Second is a flap disc.



Moe, it ain't just a case of what others think or do; it's all about what works for you...

Just remember there, air force, keep your trimmer away from your nuts.

Advice too late...I cut a gash in my upper thigh about one inch from my boy on the left...Close one.

My backing pads are old school..flat hard fibrous material...I'll look for a depressed center backing pad to replace those...

I have a disk trimmer that used to belong to my father. I got it from him nearly forty years ago. I can't recall using it more than twice. I have a stack of used disks that may be trimmed all at once one day.
