The Daily Grind: Making Your Job Easier With These Grinding Machines

If you are like most people, you probably wake up every morning or evening, just dreading the fact that you have to go to work. There are not a lot of people that actually enjoy their jobs, so you are not alone. However, when you work construction, you are probably more exhausted than most. If your daily grind also includes grinding stuff, you may be really anxious about getting your tasks complete and getting out of work as soon as you can. To help ease your daily grind (both literally and figuratively speaking), try renting and using the following grinding machines.

Belt Grinder

Belt grinders require you to sit, which is a good excuse to be sitting on the job when you work construction. They are low to the ground, but their two grinding discs are elevated just enough inside the housing of this machine to spin freely. It is a good grinder to have if you find that other crew members are bringing their tools to you to be sharpened all the time. You can really hone things like a wallpaper scraper or paint scraper, as well as the claw edges of hammers and the flat heads of flathead screwdrivers.

Gear Grinder

Table saws, and just about any other tool with teeth, need sharpening too. You will have to spend a considerable amount of time using a gear grinder to sharpen these teeth, or you will be wasting a lot of money throwing decent blades in the trash when you could be recycling them and reusing them after they have been sharpened by a gear grinder. It is a good idea just to rent this machine on an as-needed basis since you will not use it for much else the rest of the time.

Angle Grinder

There is a good chance that your boss or the owner of the construction company owns one of these types of grinders. Because most angle grinders tend to be handheld tools, your boss probably owns more than one. Check the onsite tool shed or in the truck beds of all the work trucks. If you cannot find one to help strip paint or other materials from a surface, ask your boss about where to find one or where to get one. Most bosses will have some idea of where their angle grinders are stored, or they will just rent a few for those working on the construction site.
