The Grinding Wheel MUST be:
• rated to at least 11,000 RPM.
• no larger than 4-1/2″ in diameter.
• fitted with a 7/8″ round arbor hole.
from 0.16″ to 0.28″ thick.
• a type of grinding wheel suitable for
surface grinding, not edge grinding.
• dry and clean.
• proven undamaged by inspection and
by the ring-test explained below.



0.16 is the smallest it will take? Am I wrong here?
You cut with cut-off wheels, grind with grinding wheels. The only problem I see is if the way the wheels sit in the grinder cause anything less than .16" to be not held tight and just rotate loose... if that makes sense?

Check the nut on the grinder (the one that goes after the wheel, towards the outside). It should have a ridge on one side, and be flat on the other. Typically, you can flip it around and use it whichever way you need in order to secure the disc/wheel you're using.

What grinder make, and model, did you get??
