Are you using the wrong grinder attachment?

[4]When a surface grinder doesn’t perform well, it’s often because the operator is using the wrong attachment for the job.

One of the most common mistakes is using silicon-carbide stones to remove or grind floor coatings. The stones will only work for a short time before the stones’ pores get clogged and become ineffective.

Instead, use a scraper attachment. To make sure you are using the right attachment, research the applications for each type of attachment before buying or call the manufacturer.

Also, keep an eye on the attachments’ wear during use. If you wear down the stone completely and keep grinding with just the remaining aluminum plate holder, the aluminum disc will need to be replaced. By keeping an eye on the wear, you can save on unnecessary replacement costs.
