I'm really sorry to hear of your injuries. If you are going file a claim against a large company like Dewalt, you will need a lawyer. They have lots of them and pay them well to prove injuries aren't caused by their products. All they have to do is prove it was because you used the tool improperly, use the wrong accessory or for something it wasn't designed to do. Most lawyers will do a consultation with you for free or low cost fee to determine if you have a case or not. If you do, they usually have you sign a contract to get their payment if you do win and are awarded any damages.

  • 1 Check the grinder before you begin. The newer discs on rotary grinders have patented buttons that allow you to remove the disc without any tools. You may have one like that. In models like this, there's usually a spot to depress and then remove the disc.

  • 2 Turn off the grinder before you attempt to remove and change the disc on your rotary grinder. If it's battery powered, put the grinder in lock position so you can't accidentally turn it on. If it's electric, unplug the grinder from the wall.
  • 3 Look for a nut in the center of the disc. This is a give away that you need to use your special wrench. Sometimes the grinder comes with a tool necessary to loosen and remove the nut. Other times you need to use a wrench.
  • 4 Lock the wheel into place before you begin. You can find a button or switch at the side or back that allows you to do that. When you lock the wheel in place, the disc remains still as you loosen the nut in the center.
  • 5 Remove the nut in the center with either the tool provided with the grinder or a shop tool and lift the disc off your rotary grinder.
  • 6Lift the disc off the rotary grinder. If you have different discs, remember to check for the best fit. Put the nut back on a different way for different discs. Check for a rim and indentation on one side of the nut and a flat side on the other. A visual inspection of the disc for the rotary grinder gives you information about the side to use.

    Is it safe to use the 41/2" hand grinder one handed?

    The danger of using a grinder single handed is that if the disk catches in the workpiece, the grinder will try to pull out of your hand and you can loose control of it and risk possible injury or damage what you are working on. This is especially dangerous if you are working off a ladder or on a height as you could loose your balance.
    When using an angle grinder you should always wear eye protection and try to keep your head to one side out of the plane of the disk avoiding sparks and possible fragments of the disk which will fly at high speed if it shatters.

    Do you need to keep grinding guard on when using a cup wire wheel on the grinder?

    Hello, W/D here.

    It's always a wiser choice to leave the guard on to help keep particles from being slung at you.
    In addition to the guard, you should also wear eye protection. I have extensive experience in industrial work, and I cannot emphasize strongly enough how important this is. Where I worked, working with a wire wheel required that the guard be in place and that the operator wear safety glasses and a face shield. An eye injury is one of the most serious accidents that can be easily avoided.
    Best regards, and work safely, --W/D--

    If you are using these disks you need to apply very light pressure with the angle grinder and ensure you aren't putting any side pressure on the side of the disc.
    Also imagine a line at a tangent to the disk. This should be kept at a shallow angle to the work piece to prevent the edge of the metal digging into the cutting disk.
    As a rule of thumb you have the correct angle when the sparks are flying at less than 30 degrees back towards you.
    Also make sure the retaining flange nut on the angle grinder is the correct way around to grip the disk, sometimes the nut has to be reversed to grip grinding discs.

    Well, I would make sure your arbor flanges are installed correctly. If you arent sure, I would make sure that the one with the chamfer goes on first, with the chamfer facing the tool (see picture 1). Put your disc on, and then install the locking flange (picture 2). If the disc isnt tight, flip the locking flange upside down and see if it gets tight. It is entirely possible that the disc is too thin, or the ID of the disc is too large. Let me know how this goes.
