    Arbortech mini-grinder great for contouring chair seats
    Arbortech grinding blade cuts great in hardwoods as well as softwood. Have not yet needed to sharpen, but looks as though it could be done with chainsaw files. Be aware that it throws a lot of wood chips around during carving. Side handle gives easy control over carving to a line or pattern. Could have used in the past to distress furniture pieces instead of by hand with a scrup plane.
    Definitely would recommend to others doing furniture making or large carvings.

    A machine with potential; but overly aggressive and must be used with extreme caution.

    Can I do planning and sanding with one tool?
    Sergio D on Aug 13, 2016
    Would this work with Arbortech's ball gouge?
    Jacob M on Feb 5, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: NO, the two tools do not work together. The ball gouge has a female thread which goes on a separately purchased grinder. The male shaft is apparently the same size and thread regardless of the brand of handheld grinder. I have both the mini-grinder and the ball gouge.
    Is kick-back an issue with this tool?
    Arthur G on Nov 2, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: I have not found kick-back a problem. It happens, but the blade is so small and light that there is not enough momentum behind it to give it much force. Low mass and the large side handle keep the tool from getting away in situations that might be troublesome with a larger wheel. I do find that it removes wood surprisingly quickly given the tiny wheel size. One tip--for most purposes you'll want to skip the steel wheels and go with carbide. It's not difficult to sharpen the steel wheels, but it has to be done quite often.
    Does the abortech mini grinder come with a case to hold the tool and accessories when not in use?
    Mike B on Dec 2, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: Currently no, but we are looking into a case at the moment! The tool however is built to last and is incredibly durable.

    Is this tool variable speed?
    Randy H on Nov 1, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: No. Single speed only. Slower speeds would hinder carving ability
