Agreed, what I said in post Number 12 has been repeated enough times to make me realise no one read it in the first place.

And just to clarify, I have never generated anything like enough heat to damage the point plastic, just as I have never damaged any sleepers with heat while soldering droppers to the undersides of the rails.

Just had a thought, there are specific cutting discs and grinding discs. You can usually tell it is a cutting disc by it being visibly much thinner. Cutting discs are designed to cut on the edge, grinding discs are generally designed to cut on the face and are usually much thicker. If you try to cut with a grinding disc it will generate a lot more heat.

As I said, just a thought.
