It sounds like your question is whether you can run the grinder and grind on the opposite side. What might happen is the chipped wheel (if the chip caused a crack) is the wheel would shatter while running. So that would be the danger. if the grinder is running smooth, I wouldn’t be afraid to use the other side…..but that’s me, and I suspect the safety police would object. What about just removing the chipped wheel and continue to use the grinder?
