Your absolutely correct!! those run at very high rpm. They can cut through a glove and your fingers before you know it! Hold on tight to those tools and use them cautiously.
My friend’s cousin had a grinding disc come apart and took some pieces in his abdominal area
Was only wearing a tee shirt, lucky he didn’t bleed out, ended up getting stitches
So Wear your leathers, worth it and a face shield, and gloves
Leathers are hot, but well worth it
Now that I think about it, a chop saw with a steady for the work piece would be even more "dial-in-able". Hmmm, potential for a new tool to add to the collection....

"I also joined a year ago. had been on here a couple of times as a non-member and found the info very helpful so I got a one year subscription (not very expensive at all) to try it out. I really like all the resources on here so I just got a three year. I think its a very small price for what you can get out of this site."
