    A Melbourne based winner!!!

    A huge congratulations to the winner, Tara Johnson from Melbourne. Tara purchased the winning bucket from her local supplier Sydney Tools, a family owned Australian company which operates nationally. Sydney Tools was founded in 2001 and currently operates through Sydney Tools online and in 51 stores across New South Wales, Victoria, Queensland, Australian Capital Territory, Northern Territory, Western Australia and South Australia.

    “I ‘reluctantly’ went to pick up yet another bucket of the 3M™ Cubitron™ II grinding discs for my partner. He is currently working on projects that involve grinding welds flush, deburring end cuts, plates and beveling steel. He specifically requested the 3M fibre discs as he considers them to be the best discs he has ever used (grind faster and leaves a very smooth finish)”.

    “After the purchase, I noticed the promotion and decided to open the bucket. Much to my shock the winning disc for the Jayco camper trailer was inside. My partner also couldn’t believe it once I informed him of the exciting news. I look forward to trading the usual tent camping trips for a much more luxurious camping style in the new Jayco Eagle Camper Touring Trailer.”

    -Tara Johnson-

    The camper trailer was presented by Prestige Jayco’s Sales Manager Mitchell Lyster who was accompanied by the 3M VIC representative, Michael Watson as well as Jamie Balaam & Kozi Sekino, from Sydney Tools Geelong who sold the winning bucket.

    Stay tuned for the next 3M bucket promotion in 2022, which is shaping up to be bigger and better!

    3M™ Cubitron™ II 982C Fibre Discs

    3M™ Cubitron™ II Fibre Disc 982C offers optimum performance and productivity on carbon steel with our exceptionally high-performing 3M Precision Shaped Grain combined with a stiff fibre backing, and generates up to twice the cut-rate, durability, and life of other fibre discs—all with less grinding pressure.

    Our 3M™ Cubitron™ II Fibre Disc 982C is well-suited for edge chamfering, beveling, and removing carbon steel welds, mill scale, pits and imperfections, machining grooves, and more.

    Proprietary Cubitron™ II products have raised the bar for high-performing abrasives. 3M engineers started with 3M™ Ceramic Abrasive Grain and used 3M Precision Shaped Grain technology to generate triangular shaped grains that are electrostatically oriented on the backing to form sharp peaks and maximize cutting potential. These peaks act like individual cutting tools that slice through metal, and continuously shelf-sharpen as the points break off. The grains wear evenly and self-sharpen, reducing heat due to friction for up to twice the life of other fiber discs, with less grinding pressure. The result is that Cubitron™ II discs outcut and outlast every conventional ceramic industrial abrasive disc on the market, maximizing productivity and minimizing operator fatigue.

    Fiber discs are heavy-duty discs ideal for weld removal, grinding, and blending large and small areas of metal surfaces. They feature a tough, stiff backing made from vulcanized fiber that resist wear and can handle tough grinding applications.

    • 3M Precision Shaped Grain maintains super-sharp points that cut exceptionally fast with less pressure
    • Disc life is significantly longer, completing more parts per disc and requiring fewer disc changes
    • Triangular-shaped ceramic grain wears evenly, runs cool, and optimises mineral breakdown
    • Stiff fibre backing and a strong resin bond provide durability and tear-resistance for heavyweight applications such as high-pressure weld grinding, and can be used wet or dry
    • 22mm centre hole mount is compatible with 3M™ Disc Pad Face Plates and Hubs, and requires the use of a disc retainer nut (all sold separately)
    • Complete carbon steel solution
