    Default HELP: Grinder sparks stuck in brickwork

    hi all i have recently screwed up big time on my brick wall . I was grinding away at a steel beam not paying attention to where the sparks were going, When i eventually finished grinding i turn to notice that all the grinders sparks have come to rest on the wall. Now leaving a wall off metal. Does anyone have any ideas how to remove them it is a cream face brick if that helps. Please help me. Thanks

    Hi,

    No experience with this, but of course the sparks were basically molten metal, now stuck on. I think that any acid powerful enough to attack the metal would be just too dangerous to use, so a high speed random orbital sander (for leaving a flat surface), with a very coarse grit paper, seems the only way.

    AEG 125mm Random Orbital Sander #EX125E

    Cheers

    All youll do is burnish the bricks and make it look worse.
