Grinder Question

I'm cutting some welds on my trailer to get the jackstands off as well as the stairs support beams. What kind of disc's should I be using to cut the welds?

I would be using a grinding stone / the typical grinding wheel.

i wouln't do that actually. i would use a cut-off wheel as opposed to a stone. that way you won't take away too much metal and you can get just the weld.... just incase you haven't done anything yet.

haha now this is scary.. i just got back inside from grinding.. i tried the 1/4" disc and it wasn't able to get into the corners so i used a cut of disc and had it done in about 30 mins.

Mods u can lock/delete this thread if ya want.
