Safety Articles from Desert Diamond Industries

It may seem like we harp on the dangers of abrasive blades and grinders here, but it’s for a good reason: the things can kill you.

To hammer that point home, we’re featuring this safety video on abrasive angle grinder blades from WorkSafeBC today on the blog. It has plenty of tips on how to use abrasive blades safely, but it also shows – pretty effectively, we think – the consequences of shattering abrasive blades.

We think the risks that abrasive blades pose are too great, not matter what precautions you take. We recommend that you cut with diamond blades instead. After all, why take any chances?
