Monte try and think of these wheel tools as no different than a angle grinder or chainsaw. If you set the cutting edge into your work similar to driving a tip of a chainsaw into a tree. It will jump back at you. The same way a chisel will. That you sharpen on your grinder (wheel) if you pass the center of the rotation. Try some less aggressive wheels and if the proxxon is variable speed slow it down and practice on a 2×6 clamped down. If the proxxon has a handle use it. If it doesn’t keep both hands on the grinder don’t use any wheel or burr that is aggressive. Take a look at the arboretech guard that comes on the 2” grinder. They have placed it so the owners don’t use the part of the cutting wheel that can easily hurt the operator. I know any tool can bring hrs. of enjoyment. Also wear protective clothing and safety glasses as these wheels can and will send wood chips flying.Well Monte be safe and enjoy your new tool.Keep on being creative and I look forward to seeing your next project!!!!!!!!!!!!
