Mount the Arbortech Mini Turbo blade onto nearly any 4'' or 4-1/2'' angle grinder, or onto the Arbortech Mini-Grinder for fast and furious carving performance. The compact 2'' blade is ideal for reaching into tight spaces. It features two removable, replaceable carbide cutters that can plane surfaces smooth and flat along the face of the disc, or sculpt and shape materials using the edge. The perimeter can even function as a bearing surface when doing template work. Mount the blade to the included 2-1/2'' extension for deep hollowing. The included sanding discs can also be mounted for final shaping and smoothing.


Features:

  • Capable of cutting deep internal profiles
  • Leaves a smooth finish that requires minimal sanding
  • Use the blade on its own with the Arbortech Mini-Grinder, or attach the supplied extension adapter for use with 4'' and 4-1/2'' angle grinders
  • Limited side exposure reduces the chance of catching
  • Extend life of carbide teeth by rotating to new sharp edge
  • Outstanding for freehand carving of convex and concave shapes
  • Can be used with guides and templates for repeatability

Solved a problem
I made a clock out of a scrap piece of an Acacia tree stump. This tool allowed me to cut through 3" of wood to install the clock from behind.

Just what I needed
I am an abstract wood carver and this just speeded up my work beyond my expectations. It makes smooth cuts and works the wood down nice and easy. It takes a short amount of time to get the technique down and working with the grain helps, but it does the job. Hold tight but let the cutter do the work and it will treat you fine.

Perfect for the job I ordered the tool for
I had to find a way to plane off a bass bridge in my grand piano, and this worked great. I had to build a carriage to tie the grinder to and then a platform which was mounted on the harp of the piano. A challenge, but at least I didn't have to take the cast iron harp out of the piano first.

This tool is wonderful to use and saves so much time. The blade works in any direction and is smooth when cutting. I will take on a few larger projects now that I have this.

I bought these tools based on a short video promotion that
Rockler has on their website. They live up to the promises of the promotion. Fun to work with. Safe. Powerful. Puts creativity into my hands!

Was looking for a tool to make short work of removing bulk material fast, I'll give this a go and hope it preforms as advertised.

Appears to be just the tool I need for a current project: fine adjustments to a curved oak chair back.

I have an abortech power chisel. Is there a way to attach the mini-grinder to it?

I have a Makita 9557NB with 5/8" arbor. Will this fit or do I need to order a 5/8" adapter ?
Gerald L on Feb 10, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It fits on a standard 5/8 grinder spindle just fine without needing any adapter. Mine is on a Ryobi grinder from Home Depot, so I think the Mini Turbo shaft will fit any regular North American grinder tool.
where do I buy extra cutters?
Henry W on Oct 20, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I thought you could get them from Rockler, but if they are out, Arbortech has a web site. I think you can order directly from them also. Just type Arbortech in your browser and it should bring it up.
