Works for Wood too
I used this for a big log railing refinishing project, using a 4 inch angle grinder. I went through 4 different sizes and 3 makes of wire cup brushes. They all did a spectacular job of quickly removing old weathered wood and leaving a good finish in preparation for painting or staining. I tried a 3, 3.5, 4, and 5 inch brushes. The 3 inch proved to be the best for the four-inch angle grinder. The Weiler and the Forney brushes gave good service. The DeWalt brush failed and lost bristles very quickly. Price does matter. If you’re thinking of using this tool for this application, be sure to wear long sleeves and a face mask. At the end of the day your clothes will be full of bristles.
Forney 5" Cup wire brush.
Fits my 4 1/2″ right angle grinder just fine. Great for cleaning up parts. The knotted type is too course and stiff for some jobs, this has some give or flex. works great. Being able to use it in my Milwakee 4 1/2″ grinder was the most important question I had.

Wire Cup Brush Review

Solid, heavy, well built wire cup. Trying to avoid chemicals I bought it to strip paint off of concrete, which did not work out nearly as well as I had hoped it would. Hence, the 4 stars.
