One of the many attachments you can get for your drill is a grinding stone or a grinding wheel. In this article we wanted to check out what types are available and what you might use them for.

Most popular grinding stone drill attachment

These are mainly used for sharpening tools and creating nice sharp edges. Mainly they are made from aluminium oxide and are attached to the drill by a hex shank. On most of them you will see a recommendation for a maximum speed. This is for your own safety and should be adhered to.


You can buy these in a cylindrical shape but the most common shape is a tapered shape that is designed to be used on curved surfaces. Both shapes provide a similar purpose but designed to work on different shapes. The tapered ones can be used to work on things like weld joints, removing rust from gates and fences, and for smoothing out cut surfaces to remove any jagged or ragged edges.

A lot of buyers also opt for a wire brush drill attachment to do their gates and fences as these cover a larger area of work, and as such will speed up the job. These smaller stones will however give a much better finish.
