Do not use a grinding wheel if it is chipped, cracked, or worn. You can check if the wheel has cracks not  
visible to the human eye by hanging it up by the central hole and tapping it with a nonmetallic object (ie:  
screwdriver handle). If it is in good condition it will produce a metallic sound. A dull sound indicates a  
crack or break.

Only use grinding wheels that fit the Arbor (7/8”). Do not try to change or modify the mounting hole on a  
grinding wheel to make it fit. Grinding wheel replacements are available at Harbor FreightTools.

to break or disintegrate.
