GENERAL POWER TOOL SAFETY WARNINGS cont.
SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS FOR GRINDING OPERATIONS
Safety Warnings Specific for Grinding Operations:
1. Use only disc types that are recommended for your grinder and the specific
guard designed for the selected disc. Discs for which the grinder was not designed for
cannot be adequately guarded and are unsafe.
2. The grinding surface of center depressed discs must be mounted below the
plane of the guard lip. An improperly mounted disc that projects through the plane
of the guard lip cannot be adequately protected.
3. The guard must be securely attached to the grinder and positioned for maximum
safety, so the least amount of disc is exposed towards the operator.
The guard helps to protect the operator from broken disc fragments, accidental contact
with disc and sparks that could ignite clothing.
4. Grinding discs must be used only for recommended applications.
5. Always use undamaged wheel flanges that are of correct size and shape for your
selected discs. Proper disc flanges support the disc thus reducing the possibility of disc
breakage.
6. Do not use worn down discs from larger grinders. A disc intended for a larger
grinder is not suitable for the higher speed of a smaller grinder and may burst.
