    Looks like some sort of earthing point to me. Hopefully Dimal or someone else electrically trained pipes up.

    Yep, looks like an Earth Point...
    If your grinder has a 3-Pin Aussie Plugtop, does the Earth Pin (the vertical one) show almost zero Ohms continuity with the metal case of the grinder using a Multimeter set on Ohms x 1? If not, better take it to a licensed sparky to check it out for you and make it safe...

    Thanks Readeral and Dimal - l can confirm it is an earth point. The plug has an ATS tag saying that passed a test in oct 2014. l have a friend who is a sparky - l'll get him to do the test you suggest above Dimal.

    thanks again...rob
