Wire wheel brushes come in a variety of wire configurations and are intended to be mounted to power grinders, such as angle grinders and bench/pedestal grinders. Consider using a crimped wire wheel when you need a flexible wire wheel for light to medium jobs and irregular surfaces, or a stringer bead wire wheel when you have a tough job like cleaning welds. For cleaning joints or cracks in asphalt and concrete, expansion joint wire wheels are your best option when used with a walk-behind street saw. Standard twist knot wire wheels are flexible for small to medium jobs and light brushing action and are used on angle grinders. Carbon steel wire wheels are the most common type material and used for “general purpose” applications, however a stainless steel wire wheel will be your best option when using on aluminum, stainless steel, and other high tensile alloys to prevent contamination or “after rust”.
