This tool along with or by itself, the Squire fits on any 4 or 4 1/2 inch handgrinder and what it is is basically a miny chainsaw. I’ve owned one for 4 years or more and would’nt know what I’d do without it. I’ve used it on wood on the lathe to hog out wood, to hog out seats when making chairs, anytime you need to get rid of a lot of wood without using a saw or rasp or chisel. You can rake it along the wood and it’s like taking a chainsaw and raking it along a plank, it removes wood fairly smootly and fast. It also cuts wood, for a carver this should be invaluable. The Lancelot is slightly larger than the Squire, but they can be mounted in tandem, and you can get twice the cutting power. I did find one at Harbor Freight a while back so I bought it for a spare. They run about 30 to 40 bucks but to me they’re worth every penny. I’ve bought cheap grinders there (HF) too, for about 20 dollars. So you can’t beat the use of they combination. Woodcraft sells these also.
