Sparkbuster is a polycarboante-bodied safety guard, suitable for fitment to selected 115 mm and 125 mm angle grinders. Most notably, it features a spring-operated retractable blade cover, which provides maximum blade coverage during operations; this facility is considered a necessity in certain environments and jurisdictions, when toothed cutting blades are in use. Sparkbuster also has a broad steel base plate which provides a firm working platform and promotes square cuts; an optional dust extraction outlet is available and can be retro-fitted if required.
As the name suggests, Sparkbuster, when fitted with a toothed cutting blade, is most commonly used as a spark-free metal cutting system. Unlike traditional thin carborundum cutting disks, the toothed blade is unlikely to shatter and the few sparks created are suppressed by the all-enveloping cowl.
