5 Tips for using an Angle Grinder

1. Keep your grinding wheel sharp.

You can use a dressing stone, which is a solid block of hard abrasive that allows you to keep your grinding discs sharp and bring them back to life. 

2. Don’t apply pressure to the cutting wheel

Let the wheel cut for you.

3. Do not use shims

Use the proper size grinding wheel to the hub of your machine. 

4. See where your sparks are going

Spark flow is a potential hazard. Ensure there are no humans and nothing flammable in your spark flow. 

5. Be Safe

Use the correct tool for the job. Remember to use PPE and utilise a guard on your grinder.
