Make sure on the blade that it has the correct hole size for the arbor and the blade is rated for the right rpm based on your motorized device. For a 1/2 HP bench grinder, you may need washers as spacers and to help center the blade. Remember always to wear safety glasses / goggles and follow all other saftey precautions. Lastly, make sure to measure twice and cut once.
