    What grinder are you using? My 5" Makita Rattail cuts like butter. And my variable speed Metabo is like a scalpel. I'm using cut-off wheels from Benchmark Abrasives on the Makita.

    Use a black wheel or 36/40grit flap wheel to hog out material and 120/150grit to take it down to final finish. And move around. Switch side to side in your grinding. Hot metal moves around, try to keep the heat to a minimum to keep the axle straight.

    I have a Metabo 5" grinder. I use cutoff wheels and I think my flapper wheels are 80 grit.
