Under which conditions should grinding tools be stored?


To avoid deformation and damages to the tool, always store it on dry, frost-free and level surfaces. Be careful with the expiry dates of organic grinding wheels:

  1. Store them in first in / first out basis.
  2. Discard from storage those with dates that are expired.

The expiry date is marked on the wheel, and often stamped on the metal centre. It is presented this way: V../YY or V../YYYY. For instance: V01/18 or V01/2018 means that the wheel should not be used after the first quarter of the year 2018.
