correct size and shape for your selected wheel.
Proper wheel flanges support the wheel thus reducing
the possibility of wheel breakage. Flanges for cut-off
wheels may be different from grinding wheel flanges.
Do not use worn down wheels from larger power
tools. Wheel intended for larger power tool is not
suitable for the higher speed of a smaller tool and

ADDITIONAL SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
FOR SMALL ANGLE GRINDERS
Use the guard and ensure it is fitted correctly.
Check mounting flanges and the disc are correctly
fitted and are undamaged.
Ensure you are using the correct size and type of disc
for the task.
Ensure the disc are rated in excess of the spindle rpm
of your angle grinder. Allow a newly assembled wheel
to idle off-load for 30 seconds before starting any
Operating your angle grinder (Fig. A)
To switch on, push the slider switch forward (1). To switch
off, press the rear of the slider switch.
Fitting the discs (Fig. B and C)
Proceed as follows:
Disconnect the plug from the electricity supply.
Ensure the guard is fitted. Place the inner flange (7)
on the spindle. Ensure it is located on the two flats.
Place the abrasive disc on the spindle and inner
flange (8). Ensure it is correctly located.
Fit the threaded outer flange (9), making sure it is
facing in the correct direction for the type of disc fitted.
For grinding discs, the flange (9) is fitted with the
raised portion facing towards the disc. For cutting
discs, the flange (9) is fitted with the inner portion
facing away from the disc.
Hold the spanner on the flats of the spindle to prevent
rotation of the disc and tighten the outer flange with
the spanner provided.
Press in the spindle lock button and rotate the spindle
until it locks (Fig. C). Keeping the lock button pressed
in, tighten the outer flange with the spanner provided.
Handy hints (Fig. D)
Hold your angle grinder firmly with one hand around the
side handle and the other around the body of your angle
Always position the guard so that as much of the
exposed disc as possible is pointing away from you.
Be prepared for a stream of sparks when the disc
touches the metal.
When grinding, always maintain the correct angle between
the disc and the work surface (15°)(Fig. D). This increases
