Hollow grinding basics question?

Does it matter "where"'on the wheel, you grind when hollow grinding? Do you want to be in the center of the wheel or does it matter?

You may end up using anywhere from the middle of the wheel to somewhere pretty low. It depends on how you have your equipment set up as well as the width of the blade you are grinding. More important than that is that you must be comfortable while you grind.

In my video I point out that my grinder is elevated so that the wheel is near my solar plexus because that's where I need it in order not to be stooped over when I grind. Elbows tucked in, sway your body to move the blade...
