The tools aren’t HSS, but cheaper ones and burn quickly even with a white norton disk on my grinder. I am thinking about a Worksharp or slow spee...

It also said to wear gloves which I wasn’t. I uncoiled it and threw it, but my thumb got caught. I got a pretty decent cut and just wanted to remind myself...
