I've used something similar to remove scratches on the windscreen of my last car. It did a decent job, but there are a few things to bear in mind:

1. You might see some visual distortion where the glass was polished, especially if it's in your line of vision - you are removing glass, after all.
2. You have to keep the area wet and must keep the polishing head moving - if you concentrate your efforts in one area, or let it run dry, you can generate too much heat and crack the glass. The glass does get warm.
3. It's very messy - I sprayed polishing compound all over the garage! I had taped polythene sheet all over the car's bodywork, but some still worked through. You have to be very careful (and quick) to get the compound off paint.

Coming back to the original question - this may remove grinder spatter marks, but you might still see where you've polished. Worth a try though...

The older I get, the better I was...

Ok try my trick

1) scrape excess off with a glass scraper
2) when the wife starts moaning roll eyes
3) get a girlfriend
4) divorce wife
5) sit back and relax as suddenly the shards of metal in the glass are the least or her problems

Just use Clay bar and detailing spray before going in with anything abrasive.

I mistakenly bought a glass lens for my welding mask, thinking it would be tougher than plastic. After about five minutes it had got so pitted and scored that I had to bin it!!
