Thread: Could this large aggressive grinding tool be used for wood carving?

    Could this large aggressive grinding tool be used for wood carving?

    Exploring options for wood carving and was looking at this very large very very course grinding wheel that was not designed for wood but looks like it could be a very aggressive and fast cutter for large wood carvings. So, your thoughts and comments, especially from those with carving experience. I have no plans to purchase this item now, just exploring options. This grinding wheel is 7" diameter but there are probably similar 4 - 4.5" versions available.

    I tried one like that made for grinding cement on a piece of wood & it left a lot of burned marks!

    Your better off getting a King Arthur wheel https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M9h0pTdWqGc

    I personally haven't tried this brand! But Arbortech Tools https://www.arbortechtools.com/us/woodworking/
    have gotten good reviews.

    Their 2" mini carver set-up is on my wish-list.

    I really enjoyed my arbor tech mini. Haven't tried King Arthur tools but similar idea. You might also look at Kutzall tungsten carbide discs (King Arthur makes them too). Varying levels of aggressiveness available.
    Good luck!

    I donít believe that wheel would work very well but for fast stock removal I have the arbor tech, kitzalls , king Arthurís ( for angle grinder, and wheels for that as well. Depending what you plan on doing they have their places.
