I have heard of people grinding aluminum with some hard and soft rubber wheels of some sort. I have heard that it is dangerous to grind aluminum on a grinder that you also use to grind steel with because of mixing aluminum with steel particles. It’s a safety hazard. However, I don’t have a lot of experience with machining aluminum because we use mostly steel and cast iron in our machine shop.
