    DESCRIPTION

    The Merlin2® Tungsten Carbide Coarse Red Disc is a 2" (50mm) diameter rasp that allows for the fast and effective removal of material, creating fine surfaces when working along or across the grain as well as on end grain. The red disc is extremely useful for creating or carving concave or convex shapes, (inward or outward contours) and deep hollows in vessels like spoons and bowls as well as detail work on animal or facial sculptures. It can be used on both its face and edge.

    The sharp tungsten carbide teeth ensure fine and tear-free shaping of the wood. Rasp discs are also highly effective on bone, horn, antlers, fiberglass, plastic, solid rubber, foam core, polyurethane, soapstone and composite materials. This accessory fits all our fixed and variable speed Merlin2®  miniature angle grinders - A Wizard of a Tool. It also fits early model Arbortech mini grinders which have more aggressive removal but with less control.  Changing accessories is easy using the Allen key and lockdown spindle button in the die cast housing.

    If material build-up does occur, waste is easily removed using a small propane burner, brass metal brush or cleaning solvent.

    For orders of more than three (3), please call 1-800-942-1300 for US buyers and (850) 877-7650 for international buyers.

    Now carvers who are working on a smaller scale can enjoy the rapid, yet controlled stock removal that large scale carvers have enjoyed for years. You can remove material, smooth, outline and finish shape with the tungsten carbide disc. Only 2" (50mm) in diameter, this Tungsten Carbide Coarse Red Disc reaches into tight areas which previously had to be carved and smoothed by hand. Discs are designed to be driven by the powerful and proven Merlin2 long neck mini grinder, which features variable speed electronic speed control from 3,300 to 13,000 rpm. All discs have a 10mm arbor. It allows for rapid, yet controlled stock removal and easily smoothes the hardest woods. A variety of other 2” (50mm) disc accessories are available to fit Merlin2®; from specialty cutters to sanders – King Arthur’s Tools offers a selection of over 50 accessories to expand your creativity.

    When Tungsten and carbon unite they become Tungsten Carbide, one of the hardest of all carbides made. This very hard material is commonly used for the tips of tools, especially cutting tools and grinding tools. Tungsten carbide coated tools are extremely long-lasting, and can be used for sanding and the surface treatment of a wide range of materials. Carbide's long life and effective sanding qualities save time and improve results. Carbide is the name of a sintered metal (tungsten) - an extremely hard metal having approximately 98% of the hardness of an industrial diamond. The abrasive consists of grains of carbide of a particular size depending on the purpose, which are welded onto a steel base.

    The sharp tungsten carbide teeth ensure fine and tear-free shaping of the wood. Rasp discs are also highly effective on bone, horn, antlers, fiberglass, plastic, solid rubber, foam core, polyurethane, soapstone and composite materials. This accessory fits all our fixed and variable speed Merlin2® miniature angle grinders - A Wizard of a Tool. It also fits early model Arbortech mini grinders which have more aggressive removal but with less control.  Changing accessories is easy using the Allen key and lockdown spindle button in the die cast housing.
