Tips for Using an Angle Grinder

An angle grinder is a versatile tool that can be found anywhere you rent or buy power tools. This handheld device uses an interchangeable wheel to cut, grind, and polish a wide variety of materials. Here is a quick guide to using an angle grinder:

First of all, always use protective gear such as goggles, gloves, a dust mask, and ear protection. It is also important to hold an angle grinder securely, using the two perpendicular grips.

When beginning a task with an angle grinder, make sure that you have securely attached the appropriate wheel. Tighten the wheel with a tool, not with your hands. You can use a wire brush wheel to clean rust or sediment from tools, and a metal grinder to sharpen large blades. Specialized cutting wheels can help you cut through tile, masonry, and even rebar.
