Usually the retaining nut tightens clockwise with the grinder rotating counter clockwise. Tighten the nut as tight as you can with whatever available wrench you have. When you start using the grinder/wire wheel the wheel against the retaining nut will finish the tightening for you.

Hope this helps,

And always use saftey glasses with any grinder. The wire will sure mess up a eye. I have seen it happen. (not me).
