Product Information:

Carve, cut, shape and sand with one tool! 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 with Lancelot wood carving discs. The special 8-tooth chain disc, which is mounted between two stainless steel plates, easily cuts the hardest of woods regardless of grain or knots. Only 2" in diameter, it reaches into tight areas which previously had to be carved and smoothed by hand. You can rough out with the chain disc, then smooth and finish shaping with the tungsten carbide disc and 100 grit flap sanders. Discs are designed to be driven by the powerful and proven Proxxon long neck mini grinder, which features electronic speed control from 3,300 to 13,000 rpm. All discs have a 10mm arbor.


  • Speed and Power
  • Easily cuts the hardest wood

    Comments about King Arthur Tools Complete Merlin Kit :

    A friend let me borrow his to try for a wood carving knowing it probably wouldn't last long... He had repaired it once already due to a control chip burning out (I'll add that this was his second one). It is an addictive tool- I was using the Merlin grinding attachments (like a holey galahad, without holes) in a soft maple. Knowing it could burn out, I was careful to let it rest frequently and allowed the tool to do the work, and was able to get 75% of the work needed completed. In a tight spot, it bound and fried. Loved the tool, but buying an Arbortech Mini Grinder instead.

    Not so durable.

    Comments about King Arthur Tools Complete Merlin Kit :

    Phooey. I bought an older Proxxon version in 2007, using it off and on over the years. The speed-control pot burned out after the first couple of hours, and the ball bearing in the head has just disintegrated after a total usage of maybe a couple of hundred hours (no way to lubricate). The switch dangerously turns on and off far too easily. My Dremel grinders are far more rugged; no problems with them after thousands of hours. Still, this does the job as nothing else, which is why I'm buying another anyway.

    I am planning to use the tool for wood bowel carving. The tool is compact and easy to use. It really does not cut as well as I would like. It really needs to be advertised as a detail and finishing tool.

    Comments about King Arthur Tools Complete Merlin Kit :

    I build custom electric guitars for a living. My guitars require a lot of sculpting that is very time consumeing by hand and this tool speeds up that part of the process. The tool is very easy to control, lightweight and sturdy. I would buy it again in a heartbeat.

    Comments about King Arthur Tools Complete Merlin Kit :

    I'm a professional artist/sculptor/woodcarver and for excess wood removal this little guy is great! I LOVE it's quiet, very business-like sound while it's doing amazingly BIG work. The available cutting attachments are really wonderful. Over all I'm very pleased. The only objection is the location of the Off/On switch. It should be on the end or have a half "hood" over it... could be dangerous and I also keep accidently shutting it off during operation. :-l
