The Precision Carving System fits most 4″ (100mm) and 4 1/2″ (115mm) angle grinders. However, when choosing an angle grinder to suit the blade, you should look for the following features:
An auxiliary handle to ensure easier balance, manage and control. Using the handle when carving not only improves user comfort and visibility but increases user safety.
- A metal guard that can be rotated and fixed to 45 degrees
- On/Off switch to be positioned on the top or side
- 550 Watts power, at a minimum
Should have a spindle thread of:
- M14 (AUS and UK) | M14 (Europe) | 5/8″ (North America)
- If you need an M10 Adaptor Nut click here.
The Precision Carving System can be used on a variable speed or cordless grinder, as long as it runs at a speed of 9000 RPM or higher.
The Precision Carving System, like all of the Arbortech products, should run smoothly and be easy to control. Applying the correct cutting technique when using the precision Ball Gouge and Precision Barrel cutter will ensure it runs smoothly on even the hardest woods.
Possible cause: The Precision Carving System is not fitted correctly.
Solution: Check that the universal adaptor shaft is fully tightened to the base of the grinder’s spindle. Remove the backing flange before screwing the universal adaptor.
Cutting along the grain will result in the tearing of the wood. Cutting across the grain will result in a smoother cut with minimal tearing.
