Anyone use one of these instead of a cut-off wheel? Worth $15...

I don't know about that. It is sure one expensive wheel to bust of you twist your arm in accident. I broke two cheaper wheels cutting some 3/16" wall pipe down in the ground with a narrow trench. I wouldn't want to have spent $30 for a gravy job.

I've used them on tile and cement. But not metal. They worked great on that stuff.
I have more questions than answers

I might have to give that one a go. As often as I cut thin-wall pipe in awkward places, that might be a gem. The .05" kerf is acceptable, since my .045 cut-off wheels make a bigger kerf for my hand movement and the fact that the whole depth is abrasive.

Let us know Steve if you use this, or one similar. Maybe can get a better deal online?

I was sent a free trial blade and I got all hot and bothered just looking at it. So I dropped my office work and ran into the shop to try it like a little kid on Christmas morning. Well, yes, it cuts steel without ripping all the diamond off the base, that's about it. My opinion was it was worth exactly what I paid for it, nothing. It is extremely loud and cuts slow as molasses in January with such a ragged burr you'll think you have a school of hungry piranha on the back side of your material.

Did I throw it in the recycle bin? No. Someday, when I'm out in the field and in a pinch to cut something it just might save my butt. Would I pay for one just to have around for the afore mentioned "in a pinch" use, no.

Well based on that I'd rather spend my $15 on a pack of 10 decent cut off wheels than one that doesn't cut that great

On the bright side I did find a good use for it. It's awesome at cutting PVC pipe when doing sprinkler repairs!!!

I cut pvc pipe in an abrasive chop saw. Done fast, there's very little melt and my hand-held de-burring tool dresses them right up in one pass. Also, no "grabbing" like cutting them with a wood blade.

That's the thing with pvc-can be cut by anything. Same with aluminum. A wood blade will cut thin aluminum nicely or at least to get it cut.
