Trying to clean an old heating system or metal railing of rust bloom in order to repaint it straight away? No problem for the WSM 617 angle abrasive mop. Wherever a finely ground surface is required, the tool has proven itself time and again over decades. The slim-line mop with fan-shaped, radial, corundum covered flaps adapts optimally to the contours, allowing it to reach those difficult to access areas and be used on complex shapes. Deburring, or removing welding pickle, light scratches or paint residues: the WSM 617 produces smooth surfaces and deals with edges without causing burrs. This saves an intermediate step when machining metal workpieces. But what few people know is that, with the help of the WSM 617, an angle grinder with speed regulation can also be used to machine workpieces of wood.

Pro tips

„The WSM 617 is capable of grinding everything, providing the speed is right," says Marko Klein, Field Sales.

 

 

 


1 Simple assembly: The WSM 617 is easily clamped onto the spindle of any commercially available angle grinder. No extra accessories are required, just the clamping flange on the angle grinder.


2 No clogging or deep penetrations: The flaps of the WSM 617 are extremely flexible and long. With rust and paint removal in particular, this prevents it from clogging or penetrating too deeply.


3 Adjustable hardness: The hardness of the WSM 617 can be adjusted on angle grinders with speed regulation. The rule of thumb: the faster, the greater the hardness. At a low speed, the WSM 617 is even suitable for machining wood!


4 Mouldable: The WSM 617 easily contours to any surface structure. It is therefore perfect for machining weld seams that are difficult to access, for example..
