Bugger me, they must of been dirty overalls Lang
Thats pretty sad, the old 9 inch grinder has been the cause of occasional fire with me
My Dad always had a bath tub full of water out side the workshop door and the odd times he has impressed his leg into it

I have started few grass fires with a 9 inch grinder, always managed to get them out but when on cracking clay soil it takes a while as it burns in the cracks

I set Fire to a Nylon Jumper I was wearing once with a 9" angle Grinder.. Was a very old one with a Switch & not a Trigger.
Wasn't much Fun holding a Running 9" Grinder in one hand bashing the Flames out with the other hand..

I really miss my 9 inch grinder(the 14 inch not as much) most places have banned anything above 5s these days so the 9 stays at home.

I dont use the 9 inch much anymore since the advent of the cordless 5 inch grinder
But if I have a lot of heavy work there is nothing else as efficient as the 9 inch grinder, mind you after a 15 minutes my hands are all jelly these days

Not that I've looked lately but you could buy the King Gee overalls online.
Important you know the size.
