Has anyone out and about seen Pferd brand cutoff wheels, grinding wheels, and flap discs? I have used all of the brands out there and Pferd has never let me down. Their cutoff wheels last litterally 20 times longer than any other brand. The flap discs grind welds faster that any other product I have used. They also do not flex so smoothing welds on sheet doesn't gouge the metal on either side like the crappy home improvement store brands do. I dislike doing business with Tool zone on 104th and they sell Pferd. Just in case I didn't need another reason to buy from them, I ran up there last night and they no longer stock the flap discs. I asked them to order some for me (offered to pay for them in advance) and they refused.

General Air (welding supplies) here in CS carries Pferd disks. I think they're a chain with stores in Denver.

I switched from Pferd slicing disks to a cheaper line (Metabo) after finding them to wear as long as Pferd (in my uses - YMMV). I bought some Harbor Fright (sic) disks and they are surprisingly good, and cheap - $7 for 10 disks. They are not quite as durable, however.

Crap....I drove right by General Air and didn't think they sold Pferd. That is exactly the info I needed. So many projects happen when they happen that I need a local shop I can run to.

and Matt, I would become a distributer through my LLC but, "Thank you for your interest in becoming a PFERD distributor. The PFERD USA marketing philosophy is based on selective distribution. The number of PFERD distributors in a given market area is determined by the size and sales potential of the region, and by the channel of distribution: industrial, welding or contractor supplies. This reduces instances of multiple PFERD distributors competing for the same end users. As a result, users are well serviced by loyal and profitable distributors."

I sent them an email asking for a list of "loyal and profitable distributors" and she is out of the office until Monday.
