3M "plastic" bristle cups?

I've just came across these plastic/nylon brisle cups, either 2" or 3" for using on something like a diegrinder for paint removal.I seen green,yellow, and white which are of different coarsness.I bought one and only tried it for a minute, but it looks like they would be great for hard to get at spots.Has anybody out there used them much? Will they damage stainless trim if you were to use one of them say around a window edge?

Yes, they will damage the stainless. I have never found much a use for them. But a customer of mine sold the hell out of them to a steam railroad restoration shop.
Those things worked great on the train cars. They used them to get around those big old rivits.

3M makes another product, the "Clean and strip" disc, those ones that look like a hamburger patty. They are the best for stripping paint as far as I am concerned. Or the little "ROLOC" fiber discs, they are awsome as well.

I have found that the bristle brushes are excellant for cleaning aluminum surfaces, like intake/exhaust mounting surfaces on aluminum heads. Used with a light touch they will not ruin (dig in) the surface like the scotchbrite type pads do.
