      You're set. That's everything you need to cut (420/426 cut off wheels), clean up the edges (sanding drums), and even polish it up (felt and compound).

        Cool. I just ordered a set of aluminum handrims, so I’ll throw those into the chair and then I’ll have all the time in the world to cut and sand down the titanium ones. Plus the aluminum handrims can take the damage from the inevitable drops I will surely have as I get used to the different balance of the new chair tossing it in and out of my car.

          I just used a hacksaw on mine https://www.lowes.com/pd/CRAFTSMAN-1...Saw/1000595407

          I have a beefy vise I used to hold them still. Didn't take that long and you can use either a file or if you have an hand-held angle grinder (or Dremel) you can clean up the edges to be smooth.

            Yeah. I'm not a big fan of those discs that come 10 in a pack, or something like that. I'd rather buy 1 that's stronger.
