Rotex 150 diamond pad
« on: November 23, 2021, 12:02 PM »
Greetings to all.  I would like to remove glazing from shelves that are used in a ceramic kiln.  The glaze drips are cooked at high temperature, and are firmly adhered to the shelf.  The drips tend to shatter sharply when removed by hammer-chisel.  Is there a heavy duty diamond pad for the rotex 150 that might smoothly grind off these drips?

Good health, Peter

I'd use a small right angle grinder with a silicon oxide wheel or a diamond cup wheel.

There really isn't anything available for a Rotex. The best Festool offers is Saphir paper but that's aluminum oxide based so that is probably too soft for the ceramic.
