About what I have - one has a cut off wheel, another Rol-Locs, the bigger electric has a grinding wheel, the fourth flap and on up the scale.

I have had a couple of the 1/16 or 1/32 cut off wheels break up - man does that stuff fly - but so far no damage to self or part. I always wear goggles or face shield

If do I drop a grinder with one of those 1/16 or 1/32 wheels on it, that wheel is removed, broken in half and thrown away so it can never be retrieved and used again. I've found that just like a piece of buttered bread that if you drop it, it always lands to do the most damage.
