1 T Aluminum Mockup of overlap joint. Short piece (< 0.5m) resting on foam insulation Gentle grinding: Max Temp < 50 C Aggressing grinding: Max Temp < 90 C ~1 mm thick emery grinding wheel Work done by Bert Gonzales Temperature monitoring: Jorge Montes

2 Temperature (Celsius) versus time (arbitrary)Monitor 1 Monitor 2 Monitor 3 Aggressive grinding at time ~ 500 Gentle grinding at time ~ 80

3 Bert Gonzales reported that cutting through the weld was not any harder than cutting through T Al Dremel tool kit also has a fiber-glass reinforced emery grinding wheel. Bert says that this is harder to control. It tends to jump a bit. Emery wheel is recommended.
