My Makita 4.5 inch grinder says to use a different guard when using cutoff wheels. It looks like the thing sortof wraps around the cutoff wheel -- might make it easier to guide and would definitely provide more protection than the "open face" guard the thing came with.
Thing is, I've never used one of these special cutoff wheel guards and I've never seen anyone else use one either... Am I flirting with Death? I do use a full face shield, etc. Do you folks use the special guard?
