I keep a leather apron permanently parked on top of my anvil. If I put it away, I won't wear it. I have many pairs of jeans that have been set on fire from sparks when cutting steel. A speed control is a good idea Mark. I recently polished some granite and needed to slow things waaayyy down. So I used a light dimmer switch. While I would never hang that on my dewalt grinder, I have no problem slowing down a $14 hf cheapie angle grinder.
