Danray Bench Grinder Safety Scale - BGSS-102
Grinders are one of the most frequently cited machines during OSHA machine-safety inspections. This is due to improperly adjusted work rests and tongues on bench grinders.
Work rests must be kept adjusted closely to the wheel with a maximum opening of 1/8" to prevent the workpiece from being jammed between the wheel and the rest, which may cause wheel breakage. In addition, the distance between the wheel and the adjustable tongue must never exceed 1/4".
This bench grinder safety scale that has been designed to check the openings between the grinding wheels and the tongues and work rests for compliance with OSHA and ANSI standards.
The orange-colored scale is made out of durable, 0.090"-thick anodized aluminum and has easy-to-read text and graphics that will not rub or scratch off. It is about the size of a credit card, which makes it convenient to carry and store.
It can be used during the installation, maintenance, and inspection of bench grinders to make sure the work rests and tongues comply with the OSHA and ANSI grinder safety standards, which can help reduce OSHA violations.
