    I. Thou shalt always grind away from your body
    II. Thou shalt wear eye protection.
    III. Thou shalt wear a respirator (not a bandana!)
    IV. Thou shalt keep cords away from the work area
    V. Thou shalt not spray sparks towards Acetone, gasoline, or other flammable/combustible containers or materials.
    VI. Thou shalt always clamp securely whatever you are grinding! (Do NOT hold it in your hands!!)
    VII. Thou shall keep children, pets, spouses and coworkers our of the spark shower/debris field.
    VIII. When using cutting blades, thou shalt wear a full face shield.
    IX. Thou shalt wear proper attire (Pants and shoes, not shorts and flip flops. You WILL regret sparks showering onto your shins and feet!)
    X. Thou shalt grind in a well lit area.


    Any other ideas folks?

    Gloves, don’t wear thick loose fitting gloves. Very easy to get caught up.

    If I can figure out how to add it, that"s a keeper!

    XI. Thou shalt not worry about having filthy hands! (Gloves can be dangerous around rotating equipment!)

    You'd think that would have been FIRST considering what happened to me last MAY! Thanks Craig!
