as gloves and safety shoes.
- Always ensure the maximum speed (the no load rpm) marked on the abrasive wheel is greater
than the rated speed of the grinder.
- Do not use grinding wheels that are larger than the maximum recommended size, or worn down
wheels from other grinders.
- Never use grinding wheel power tools without the wheel guard attached to the tool and positioned
for maximum safety.
