GLITTER BIT SPECIFICATIONS

- Directions for Use -

"Finishes the job what a diamond blade can't . . ."

  1. Specifically designed to grind Concrete & Hard "S-Type" Mortar.

  2. Smooth Cutting . . . Excessive force is NOT required nor recommended.  A die grinder operating between 8000 and 15000 RPM's provides the cutting speed you need . . . Especially on hard materials.

  3. Glitter Bits are for use in variable speed Die Grinders, operating between 8,000 and 15,000 Rpm.

    As Glitter Bits wear, it is possible that the metal shank will vibrate.  With the variable speed feature in the die grinder, being able to quickly lower the die grinder's RPM speed will improve the Glitter Bit's cutting performance and life.


  4. Creates a tenth the dust - compared to an angle grinder & diamond blade.  The dust that is created stays with a 3' square area (even without using a vacuum).  The dust simply doesn't go airborne, as it does when using an angle grinder and diamond blade.

  5. DIRECTIONS for USE.  When grinding brick mortar joints, start by positioning the Glitter parallel to the wall.

    - Angle the tip of the Glitter Bit into the joint on a 30° angle & proceed to grind this way, using a raking motion.

    - Always maintain a 30° to 45° angle as you continue to rake the bit across the mortar.

    - Try not to use the very tip of the Glitter Bit, doing so will wear the diamonds from the tip prematurely.  Diamond crystals need speed for life.  The outside perimeter has the correct surface speed necessary for long Glitter Bit life, whereas its tip is only spinning at 300 RPM.

    - Never push on a Glitter Bit.  Let the bit and the die grinder's 8000 to 15,000 RPMs do the grinding.  Applying excess force on a Glitter Bit will cause the shank to bend or even snap.

 

 

Testimonial 
"The bit scares me!  It is just too simple to use - any one can use it . . . You don't need to have any tuck pointing training or skill level do use this tool.

You have complete control of the bit . . . total and precise control when grinding next to a window . . ."

Glitter Bit Life - Description.
Glitter Bits are specifically designed for durability while grinding hard materials type-s mortar, granite and concrete with heavy aggregate.

Single Brick Cut-Out Procedure

1.  For use with variable speed die grinders, operating at less than 15,000 Rpm.

2.  A vacuum must be used for this application *.


(Click on .pdf to download the 1 page instruction manual)

 

Start your brick cut-out by angling the 4-5/8" Glitter into the mortar joint, as opposed to drilling straight into the mortar.1.  Start your cut into a brick's mortar joint by positioning the 4-5/8" Glitter parallel to the horizontal mortar joint.  Angle the tip of the Glitter Bit into the joint on a 30° angle & proceed to grind this way, both horizontally & vertically - around the brick, to obtain a 1" depth.

 

Make 3 or 4 passes around the brick's perimeter, each time going 1" deeper.

 

2.  Maintaining a 30° to 45° angle as you continue to "work the bit" - using a combination of holding the bit on the angle and rotating it in-and-out of the mortar joint.  Do not grind perpendicular to the wall.  Doing so will wear the tip of the bit prematurely.  Diamond crystals need speed for life.  The grinding speed for Glitter Bits is obtain on the perimeter of the bit.  Whereas the very tip of a Glitter Bit is only spinning at 300 RPM.

 

 

Cutting the vertical brick joint . . . Notice:  No Dust.3.  Repeat steps (1) and (2) above three or four times around the brick's perimeter, going 1" deep per pass, to successfully and quickly grind the mortar until the brick is free.

4.  Remember to grind with the side of the bit and not use the tip of the Glitter Bit.  Never push on the bit ~ let the bit and the die grinder's 8000 to 15,000 RPMs do the grinding.  Applying excess force on the Glitter Bit's 1/4" shank will bend the heat treated drill rod and cause injury should the Glitter Bit snap.

 

 

After every pass of the Glitter Bit, stop your cutting and just use the vacuum to remove the dust that lays in the joint.5.  Vacuum excess dust from the brick joint.

  • Periodically, stop your grinding

  • Remove the vacuum hose from the Brick Dust Controller

  • Using just the vacuum hose, go around the brick's perimeter
    to vacuum the dust that remains deep inside the brick joint.

  • By not removing the dust deep inside the joint, cutting speed
    is reduced (you'll just be pulverizing the existing dust).

 

Mortar joint completely cut around the brick.  Brick's removal is easy.Finished Product:  Individual brick removal.  Cutting through hard "S" mortar - without any dust - and no overcuts into the adjacent mortar.

6.  After the Glitter Bit has completely cut through the mortar joint and the dust is removed, lightly tap on the face of the brick to remove the brick.

 

 

 

Testimonial 
"I personally cut out over 300 bricks with a single bit.  Though it was very soft mortar, there was some hard mortar and within two minutes we had the brick out."

Testimonial 
"A very useful tool to have in your tool box . . ."

"I like it . . . and just look at the diamonds glitter . . .

I've never seen diamonds on a blade exposed or glitter like this . . . and they glitter even more as the bit wears!

The exposed diamonds are what cuts . . . I like this."

 Glitter Bit Pricing.Glitter Bit Pricing

IMPORTANT:  Glitter Bits are only for use in variable speed die grinders.  The safe RPM range for Glitter Bits is between 8,000 and 15,000 RPM.  As the Glitter Bits wear, they'll naturally become uneven which will cause the die grinder to vibrate.

The variable speed feature on the die grinder enables you to quickly lower the die grinder's RPM speed for continued smooth operation, safety, and longer life of the Glitter Bits.

HELPFUL INFORMATION:  In the Dust Director's ongoing working relationships with OSHA, NIOSH, The Center to Protect Workers Right (CPWR) and the Masonry Union (BAC), various studies have shown:

  • 80 lbs. of silica dust are created in 8 hours when grinding brick mortar joints (1/4" wide x 1/2" deep)

  • On soft mortar, 110 lbs. of silica dust is created.

FACT:  The longer you're able to grind, the greater your productivity.  With a Dust Director® Vacuum, their powerful suction is only limited to the size of the vacuum's collection tank:  The larger the tank size, the longer you'll grind for greater productivity (i.e.  less stops to empty the tank --- you will never have to stop to clean the filter.)

Extremely Flexible & Lightweight Hose.Compare & Consider . . . Shop Vac and Ridgid Vacuums have their place.  We all have one.  But when your using these types of vacuums for concrete grinding, besides the quality of the motor and their constantly caking filter system, consider how their 2.5" x 6' hose reduces productivity -  -  -  -  -

 

Assortment of Vinyl Hose Cuffs.To compensate, you increase the cost of such a vacuum by making another purchasing for lighter and more flexible hose.  Such a hose is available at ICS Company (along with an assortment of soft vinyl hose cuffs) - see our Vacuum Accessories.

 

With the hose upgrade (not to mention the half-dozen replacement cartridge filters you'll also purchase), the cost of purchasing a Ridgid or Shop Vacuum increases.  And your still left using a vacuum that isn't designed to handle volumes of dry powder.

 

Also Consider . . . OSHA'S new "NO VISIBLE DUST LAW"!

Dust linkage (rear view) from a standard type wet/dry vacuum.Dust linkage, from a standard type wet/dry vacuum.Check Your Vacuum -  Is there a gasket beneath the motor head to seal the tank?  With OSHA’s new "No Visible Dust Law" you will get fined using a vacuum that leaks dust (see pictures, right).

All Dust Director® Vacuums prevent dust exhaust in two ways:

 

Poured in place urethane gasket, beneath the head of a Dust Director Vacuum.Each Dust Director® Vacuum has a poured-in-place urethane gasket beneath its motor head (picture, left).  The gasket provides three (3) important benefits:

1)  P
revents the extracted powders in the tank from leaking between the tank and motor head.

2)
