And decent quality abrasives too. When it comes to hard wheels I prefer Rex cut sigma greens, but they're damn pricey. And on the rare occasion that I need to polish to a spec there's nothing better than 3m trizact abrasives.

That being said most of what I have in the bin right now is benchmark. Their non woven wheels for 4.5 inch grinders work very well on aluminum and at $5 each I use them often enough.

I haven't tried any belts or anything, but I run a lot of their flap discs and 6 inch cut off wheels. They are as good as anything else I've tried for their price range.
