How to Use an Angle Grinder Safely, by Power Tool Institute, Inc.

How to Use an Angle Grinder SafelyA lot of our customers use angle grinders, which is why we’re glad to see this safety video from Power Tool Institute, Inc. It has safety guidelines that will help you use your grinder safer, including:

  • How to mount grinding wheels, cutting wheels, and other accessories
  • Why wheel guards are important, and how you should mount and use them
  • General safety precautions
  • Personal protective equipment that you should wear
  • How to use grinding and cutting wheels safely
  • How to prevent kickback during grinding and cutting
  • Safe sanding and wirebrushing techniques

Of course, one safety measure that this video doesn’t mention is to use the Safety Blade Grinder/Cutter, which won’t break or shatter during grinding or cutting. Just thought we’d throw that in there.
