I'm looking for a 3" diamond drill bit

I use a 4" vacuum-brazed grinding wheel that I purchased from them. It's great for cleaning out inside cuts as the diamond wraps around to the backside of the wheel about a 1/4". Cleans up flared cuts from the snapper nicely to. I've had it for about 2 years now and it's still going strong. I've also used it to cut cbu and schluter, or just about anything that needs cutting.

Haven't taken the time to learn how to post links or use quotes yet. One of these days I'll take the time. Plus I do all my posting from my phone. Anyway, here's a pic. It's listed under cup wheels even tho it's a flat wheel.

Yep, that's the one. Think mine is medium instead of the coarse grit tho. Handy lil wheel!

I got a finer one of them. Used it to grind thinset off the back of a tile yesterday. Very handy wheel.

Talked to Andy with Husqvarna. Placed an order with him for the drill bit ( if you want to call a 3" diamond hole cutter a drill bit ) also ordered an adapter to use it in a cordless drill or my drill press.

Thanks Andy.

I've bought polishing pads and diamond core bits from toolocity. No problems and they ship small stuff via USPS which is great for Hawaii.
