About this deal

If the disc grips the cutting surface the grinder can jump or turn sharply and be torn out of your hands. A national warning has been issued by the Office for Product Safety and Standards for the immediate removal from sale of angle grinder chainsaw discs. The Office for Product Safety and Standards are also telling any business that sells these chainsaw discs as attachments for angle grinders to remove them from the market immediately as they do not comply with the Supply of Machinery (Safety) Regulations 2008.

GRINDING MACHINE DISC: Wood grinding disc made of high-quality alloy material, wood disc for grinder high hardness and durability.

Back in the UK I used it a few times and found it good - although it would eat your house if it got away from you.

The other tool is an arbortech woodcarver, they have safety humps between the teeth to stop digging in but can still be quite exciting to use, i have one but dont use it very often, it comes with guards for a reason. Je ne mets pas 5 étoiles, car les dents s'usent assez vite, pourtant, j'ai mordu dans du bête sapin.This Safety Alert is the result of a risk assessment carried out by OPSS following two previous risk alerts published by the Office in February, based on information from local regulators.
