Chainsaw grinding disc

Postby Rod Taylor » Fri Jun 19, 2015 10:33 am

Recently bought and used a chainsaw toothed disc to fit an angle grinder. Previously seen them at Bentley Wood Fair and fancied shaping a chair from a tree stump for the grandchildren. Amazed at the speed of cutting and control, so can highly recommend them for anyone like myself wanting to occasionally shape wood. The stump was softwood and green but still surprised at how little wear to the cutting edges.
Powered easily from a small generator at the wood and stump taken home to hand finish and smooth to shape. American made by King Arthur's Tools and comes in two sizes and various tooth sizes for coarse or finer cuts.
Enclosed a picture of the chair in raw state before finishing.

The main supplier appears to do shipping for £3.95 on a £40 disc.

Was supplied by Starkie Sharp.
Needs a firm wrist as can snatch and pull sideways but otherwise easy to control. Glad I chose the 'finer' cut 22 tooth model as hate to think how much the coarser 14 tooth blade would remove in one pass.
