I was watching a Charles Neil video on You Tube and he was showing how he dishes out chair seats so I looked up the tool he uses. Check it out.

Do these go on a grinder or do they sell a seperate tool for those blades?

That does look pretty awesome.

I have used both the lancelot carving wheel (disc with a chainsaw chain around it) and the carbide carving discs from Woodcraft. Both go on a standard grinder. I prefer the carbide carving discs for control, ease of use, etc. The Lancelot is awesome for removing lots of wood fast but not good for detail work. Also if it grabs into the wood it can really jar you and my one and only accident with it cut my finger to the bone, my finger is fine now.

NYRockingChairs @ Sorry about your finger, I had a finger cut fron a table saw so I know that had to hurt for a long time after. It was my first saw (JET Contractor saw) that I bought at a woodworking show but it did not have a guard with it, I should have known better and paid the price. Thanks for bringing the safety aspect out!

mnorusi @ They do fit an angle grinder but you may need to use there flange. I would call them and ask what they have 1-800-942-1300

I typically use a pair of heavy leather welders glove if I use the Lancelot , I agree the carbide grinder is much easier to control, also leave a much smoother surface, I also suggest a leather or other heavy apron, in case of a “jump back”, there is no doubt the lancelot is agressive to say the least

You can do some operations really quickly with those things, but you do have to be very careful, or, as has been stated, it can get away from you. Of course, if you’ve ever seen anyone carve out a chair seat using an adze, you can see how someone could easily get a really bad cut doing it the old fashioned hand tool way too. The adze is less mess and less noise though.
