Accessories must be rated for at least the
speed recommended on the tool warning
label. Wheels and other accessories running
over rated speed can fly apart and cause
injury. Grinding wheels or any other
accessory must have a maximum safe
operating speed greater than the "no load
RPM" marked on the tool's nameplate.
Hold tool by insulated gripping surfaces

ammonia, etc. may damage plastic parts.
Angle Grinder Safety Rules
Before using a grinder or installing a new
wheel, inspect the grinding wheel for
chips and cracks. Remove bad wheels
immediately. Run the tool at no load for
one minute, holding the tool in the
direction away from people. Wheels with
flaws will normally break apart during this
Carefully handle both the tool and
individual grinding wheels to avoid
chipping or cracking. Install a new wheel
if tool is dropped while grinding. Do not
use a wheel that may be damaged.
Fragments from a wheel that bursts during
operation will fly away at great velocity
possibly striking you or bystanders.
Do not use grinding wheel that is larger
than the maximum recommended size for
your tool, or worn down damaged wheels
from larger grinders. Wheels intended for
large angle sander/grinders are not suitable
for the high speed of a small angle
sander/grinder, these wheels may easily
