The fiberglass reinforced cutting wheels are real good, they don't wear down as fast as the regular wheels do. You'll know the fiberglass reinforced ones because they have like a checkerboard pattern on them. The regular ones don't, as well as the regular ones being a little smaller. There should be about 10 or so of each in the accessory kit, but you can buy more. I use mine all the time, cutting off bolts, re slotting stripped out screws, polishing stuff, sharpening tools, you'll find a thousand uses for it.
ya, is it possible for you to take a vid of you cutting pvc with it?
(so i can see how fast it goes)

it says it goes up to 35,000 rpm's...that should be fast enough for you to cut pvc pipe. But like I said before, the cutting wheel gets clogged with the plastic so it won't go as fast as it should.
I could see about a video, dunno if I have any pvc pipe or not.

When all else fails...Ham Radio!

I still have the same old HP DV9700T laptop I've had for years...still kickin'
