SLIDE ON-OFF SWITCH WITH LOCK
The tool is switched "ON" by the switch
button located at the side of the motor
housing. The switch can be locked in the
"ON" position, a convenience for long
TO TURN THE TOOL "ON" without locking it,
slide the switch button forward by applying
pressure ONLY at the REAR portion of the
button. When pressure is released the switch
button will snap to "OFF" position.
TO LOCK THE SWITCH "ON", slide the
switch button forward and press "IN" the
SELECTING GRINDING WHEELS
Before using a grinding
wheel, be certain that its
maximum safe operating speed is not
exceeded by the nameplate speed of the
grinder. Do not exceed the recommended
DISC GRINDING WHEELS
Grinding wheels should be carefully selected
in order to use the grinder most efficiently.
Wheels vary in type of abrasive, bond,
hardness, grit size and structure. The correct
type of wheel to use is determined by the job.
Use disc grinding wheels for fast grinding of
structural steel, heavy weld beads, steel
casting, stainless steel and other ferrous
SELECTING SANDING DISC
Sanding discs are made of extremely hard
and sharp aluminum oxide grits, phenol-resin
bonded to a sturdy fiber backing for fast
heavy-duty service and long life. The discs
vary as to size and spacing of the abrasive
grits. OPEN COAT (type H) — used for soft
materials and on paint or varnish. CLOSED
COAT (type K) —used for metal, hardwood,
stone, marble and other materials.
Sanding discs range in grit from 16 (very
coarse) to 180 (very fine). To obtain best
results, select sanding discs carefully. Many
jobs require the use of several grit sizes and

Efficient grinding is achieved by controlling
the pressure and keeping the angle between
wheel and workpiece at 10° to 15°. If the
wheel is flat, the tool is difficult to control. If
the angle is too steep, the pressure is
concentrated on a small area causing
burning to the work surface.

on the wheel.
When grinding with a new wheel be certain
to grind while pulling tool backwards until
wheel becomes rounded on its edge. New
wheels have sharp corners which tend to
