- 1. Wear safty goggles, or face shield, and keep dangling or loose objescts away from the machine.
- 2. Make sure that the bench grinder is properly secured to a surface.
- 3. If it is not properly secured, then the grinder could vibrate and move while in use, or even fall to the floor.
- 4. Check to see that the gap between the face of the grinding wheel and tool rest (aka work rest) does not exceed more an one-eighth of an inch.
- 5. Minimizing the gap prevents your work from getting wedged between the spinning wheel and work rest.
How to Use:
