Graphical Construction Glossary >> Tools. >> Power Tools >> Bench Grinder
An essential workshop machine. There are a huge amount of wheels, discs, wire brushes and buffer pads available for these versatile machines. My old machine always has a green grit (silicone carbide) wheel on one side for sharpening TCT masonry bits. Here are a few things to look out for if you are looking to but a good bench grinder.
Be particularly careful when using these machines. They have high speeds and any misuse can cause wheels to shatter. Never use a grinding wheel if you have dropped it. When using wire brushes like above a try to always use a leather apron and gloves as these wheels shed wires very easily.
