    OK, I'll bite. What is it and why are you grinding it ?

    And put a bit of timber or something on the ways !

    I've done this, brakes or clutch faces that have hot spots you can't turn through. Need to clean all the grit off the ways afterwards, that shit is incredibly abrasive.

    I'm surprised the grinder didn't go pop, from running flat chat with minimal load on it. They generally hate that shit.

    I often have to cut 1mm slots up the length of a 12mm bolt. I do this with a grinder mounted in the mill and the bolt in the vice and move back and forth whilst slowly feeding the grinder down.

    Its the mounting bracket for the electric reverse in my buggy. It needed 5mm taken off it before welding to get the mesh of the gear right. And I had to get it done before a race today, and the grinder can take big bites haha

    Our autos teacher at school did this with an angle grinder, then a dremel to grind the valves on the 202 we were building for his Land Rover.
