Disc Grinder Introduction
Let's begin! First off, make sure you have read the machine's manual, if available (should be linked from its InfoBox).
|generation of hot sparks that are expelled in varying directions||
|sparks fly very far and deposit themselves as fine dust
wear a proper dust mask when working with a grinder
|if the power has been lost for whatever reason, always return the power button to the "off" position before restoring it!|
|wear suitable gloves to prevent burns from sparks or the workpiece|
|possible kickback if the disc gets caught on the material|
|aluminum can clog an abrasive disc and cause it to overheat until it breaks||do NOT use abrasive discs on aluminum|
|a disc that is off-center or loose is very dangerous||after inserting a new disc, let it run freely for a minute and make sure it runs safe and true|
Besides these safety notes, you should know about abrasive discs, especially the difference between grinding and cutting discs!
