I have used these a bunch in a friends shop on auto body work. Where you really don't want much heat in the metal. They seem to run a bit cooler and last longer than the flat ROLOC discs. And I have had the same issue with them coming off if you decelerate too quickly. Not something that I use all of the time, but they are handy.

Yep, these things are great, I really like them. As I mentioned they make my little right angle air grinder perform really well and it is just so handy to use. I tried just putting a wrap or two of electrical tape around the threaded stem to make the fit in the mandrel more snug and it made a big difference. No more disks flying across the room. Time will tell if it holds up for long, but so far so good!
