A work colleague of mine simply won't listen when i tell him to put the guard back on his ginder or don't use it at all. maybe I need to show him this:

In virtually 20 years of metal fabrication, using grinders dayin, day out, all kinds, with all kinds of discs fitted, not once have I felt the need to remove a guard, theres just no need.

in general your mindset will be the gaurd is a good thing so removing and adapting a safe tool to be a danger will not even compute some people cannot be helped as there "self preservation" is missing or on holiday when needed :dunno:

Literally last week a mate of mine said he'd been cutting off some pipe in an awkward place with a bigger disc fitted. There were three of us talking at the time and he looked directly at me and said something like, "It's safe enough"
I didn't need to say anything. He knew what I was thinking well enough because he knows what I'm like for guards and safe working practises.
You see it all the time though. TV programs are terrible for it. I've seen at least one program recently with a "professional" using a cutting disc with no guard.

Having a 4" disc let go in my youth while grinding, the guard saved me by sending the parts 10ft away from me and imbedding in a breeze block wall

Gloves and goggles/glasses are a minimum PPE

There not called death wheels for no reason
