Machines that use abrasive wheels are powerful and most operate at high speeds. Some abrasive wheels operate at several thousand revolutions per minute. If a grinding wheel shatters while it is turning, the fragments from the wheel assembly (including the flange, spindle end, and nut) can travel at more than 300 miles per hour.
