I am a little afraid of putting a grinding wheel on my milling machine in that a grinder produces abrasive waste that can and will get into the ways of the machine and cause it to eventually loose accuracy. I guess that is just teaching from the old school. I do see that there is a curtain on the way that is on the column but, not everything is covered. Just saying.
