Bench Grinder Brake Prevents Grinder Wheel From Coasting to Stop

The bench grinder brake is an electronic device that stops your machine in seconds rather than minutes due to flywheel forces.  Do you turn off your bench grinder and leave only to find it still turning when you return?  Having any machine coast for a long time presents a safety hazard.  People walking by could get injured because the machine is unattended, and it’s hard to see that the wheels are still spinning.

Can I Use This on Other Machines?

YES!  You can use the MakeSafe electronic motor brake on saws, fans, cutting tools, etc.  These are great for the woodshop, where many machines take a while to stop safely.
