Be VERY aware of "cheap" cutoff wheels. They have a habit of exploding and burying deeply into whatever soft tissue is nearby, including your arms and face.

Look into buying one of these. Fastenal is carrying them. They are kinda loud, and leave a slightly wider kerf than standard abrasive wheel, but they more than make up for it in longevity! Plenty of $$ saved here already...
