The Safe Zone(2 of 5)

The guard has been removed from the tool for this project. The safe zone is the area that is exposed when the guard is on the tool. When using the polishing tool, be sure to work in the safe zone. Working in an area outside the safe zone can cause the operator to loose control of the piece being polished.
