"These nylon wheels are a must have if you have ever used WIRE brush wheels in your drill.3 different grit selections , they are not as aggressive as wire wheels which make them a better choice for a lot of jobs .I use them a lot on old barn wood when building projects so I can keep the character and distressed grain of the wood showing rather than sanding or planing .Repainted a refrigerator/freezer doors with appliance paint and these will take the gloss off old finish so it will accept new paint better without completely stripping the old layer . They last quite a while and work best letting them stand tall rather than using excessive pressure.
"Just tried your white Nyalox 4" wheel brush to remove my wallpaper border. Wow! Quickly removed the border WITHOUT damaging the plaster underneath. Where has this product been for all the other wallpapers I've had to remove? It sure beats the scraping and watery mess this kind of project usually creates! My wall is now ready for painting...
Thanks for making a great product!
"Thank you for making Nyalox brushes! I didn't test grout setting up on tile before letting modified grout sit over night. The grout wouldn't budge on 200 ft2 of balcony tile! Your brushes were mentioned on a Google search so I tried them out and they saved our project! I have no idea what we would have had to do to remove that grout without Nyalox. If it were up to me Nyalox brushes would be available wherever grout is sold. Thank you again! "
"I have used dico buffing wheels for years. They are much better quality than the many cheaper imported wheels commonly found these days. I used to have a local tool store that ordered them in bulk, this meant I could get them with specific hole sizes rather than the arbor adaptor, but they no longer carry these. However, I have found that the arbor adaptor works well, and the wheels are always "true", ready to go, and long lasting. I have used this and various other dico wheels on projects from vintage baby high chairs to motorcycles, and always got great results. I highly recommend these wheels."
"I was looking for something to rough up the paint on my truck's bed so I could spray in some bed liner material. I used a pneumatic drill and this cup brush and it worked great. I was a little nervous about how aggressive this would be, since I didn't want to remove the paint, just rough it up. It did this very well, even better than I expected really. You really had to push and stay in one spot to remove the paint. If you kept it moving and used normal pressure, it did exactly what I was hoping it would, knocked off the shine and roughed up the paint. ."
"Yep, thats the right brand rouge. Good stuff for the final finish on your gold, silver, brass, and other soft non-ferrous metals."
"These are an excellent polishing wheel for that "finishing touch" when it comes to buffing. I figured these wheels would be average at best but they are super soft and work very well with extremely fine grit compounds. I'll definitely buy these again when mine wear out."
"Simple to use and sturdy built this thing turns a hand drill into a versatile piece of equipment. Great for crafts and hobbies and handy in any shop that a hand drill is used. With the drill mounted it frees up your hands to hold the piece you are working with. Works with all three of my drills."
"I've used this when cleaning inside metal floor tracks as a component of stud walls. They're often rusty from water damage, and for hygienic reasons it's nice to clean off the rust when disinfecting. It handles much more smoothly than a wire cup brush attachment, and much more safely."
"these nylon abrasive wheels are really handy to keep in your tool arsenal . they hold up well and have many applications . I use them on old barn lumber when doing wood working , you can save all the weathering and character on the boards instead of planing or sanding all the good patina off ."
"Works great for getting soap scum off a tub with a power drill. Turns a 2 hour job into 5 minutes.
"This thing works great for grout removal on the tile. I had a lot of grout on my tiles and this thing combined with sulfuric acid did the job well. When you notice the brush start to not pick up grout, just reverse the drill and it will be nice and course."
"I am a remediation and abatement contractor to put my planned use into context. I purchased this product to supplant my stainless steel cup brushes. I really like how well the stainless steel cup brushes work, but they are do have definite risks to work with. You're behind a power tool, pushing one of those into your work piece. Little bits of wire break off (!), they can puncture your fingers while you're handling or grasping them and generally become very fragile all of a sudden towards the end of their usable life. So I purchased this having read the details about the product and how it works (flexible bristles impregnated with abrasives).
First and foremost, because the bristles aren't as firm this product won't strip off rust from a stud frame wall nearly as fast as a stainless steel version. That aside, this thing is freakin awesome. The flexible bristles mean that I can fit these much more comfortably into corners of a work piece. It doesn't kick back so suddenly like a stainless steel brush would if you hit something like a lip or edge. Very much unlike the old stainless steel cup brush, this thing is quite uniform in the work it does. It's almost surreal how different two sections of stud wall turned out using the old product and the new.
When the bristles break off, they don't have the same kind of energy or tension so it's lower velocity."
"if it was possible to give this product 100 stars I would.
We made a mistake and let out grout dry before wiping it off. I know, horrible horrible mistake. I'm so mad at my husband for telling me I didn't need to wipe it off as I went and just as mad at my for not googling how to do it myself.
That being said this tool saved our glass tile backsplash and my husband since there's a chance I may have harmed him for his horrible instructions and guidance.
It really works on the dried grout AFTER you wet the tile. The tile needs a good soaking before you use this tool. I sponged over the tile several times and used a squirt gun as I went. I also used a screwdriver to loosen some of the hard to get patches in the crevices.
I think the pictures speak for themselves. We had quite a mess and with this tool, water, and a lot of elbow grease we were able to save our backsplash.
The higher the voltage on your drill, the better this works. I started off with a 14.4 volt as the 18v charged and when I started using the 18v, I could really see a difference.

"Nice and sturdy, good for harder metals/materials. Have used this kind before, a bit stiff for final finish but very good for all around rough polishing/buffing of almost any material."
"Works great and last longer than wire brushes"
"I use Nyalox Wheels to clean off rust from old hand tools. They works great."
"Long lasting. The blue/fine one is very fine and is only suitable for polishing and/or finish work. I use all three versions for finishing rustic reclaimed wood. I really appreciate that they are made in the USA."
"I love this brush.
I had a rusted table saw surface, vise, drill press and surface plate and used this brush to clean off the rust. I used it with a cordless drill and it did wonders and took the items down to raw shiny steel."
"Used nyalox brush today in my electric drill. Worked nicely and no sharp wires flying around. I'll never use a wire brush again.
"I'm very impressed with the technical knowledge of the Dico Sales team. One call and all my questions were answered."
