Sorry to hear that.. Better have a fire extinguisher around; in case there is too much " force" around. IN a few weeks time, you would most probably laugh abt the whole incident...

like they say in the movie.. " use the force" and "may the force be with you..."
Dave, if you are having fire issues, you need to build yourself a grinder bong.:biggrin:
Glad to hear you got a disc grinder Dave. I think in time you will find it is a great time saver for you. It is pretty darn amazing how high a finish you can put on a blade with slow speeds, jumped my hand finish work up several notches. Don't take near as long to hand sand when you finish out to 1500 grit on a nice slow spped disc!
Sorry to hear about the fire, glad it wasnt any worse than it was. Id look at adding a metal catch drum with water and a cyclone top (think grizzly has them)
