Beveling: The backbone of a strong weld.

Beveling the edge of a metal pipe or sheet seems like a small step in the metalworking process, but doing it right makes welding easier. Making an angled bevel along two connecting edges makes more room for the weld and allows for a tighter hold. By using long-lasting, fast-cutting 3M abrasives to grind your bevel, you can minimize abrasive changeover to save money over time.
