Carving Tool With Teeth

Lancelot is the name of a new accessory for right-angle grinders that cuts, carves, hollows and shapes wood. It consists of a 4-in. dia. closed "circlet" of chain-saw teeth mounted between the rims of two stainless-steel discs. Slots in the discs keep the saw teeth cool. The assembly fits 4-in. and 4Vi-in. right-angle grinders with 5/4-in. and 7/6-in. dia. arbors. Models are available with two different chain-saw circlets—a 14-tooth for roughing out large areas with rapid wood removal, and a 22-tooth for a smoother surface finish. The saw teeth are easy to sharpen with a chain-saw file, and replacement chain circlets are available. (Price: $34.95 plus $4 shipping) MFECInternational, Dept.
