I joined this web site a couple days ago, and I’ve got my first question. Yesterday, I bought some cherry and walnut planks from an elderly gentleman who is changing his hobbies and moving away from woodworking. While I was at his house, he showed me a tool (an angle grinder attachment) that he used to carve out that area of a chair seat that, you know, conforms with the human posterior.
I don’t know what it’s called. The guy thinks he bought if from Rockler several years ago. My local Rockler guys can’t indentify it, and I haven’t been able to find it on the Internet. I would describe it as a grey, steel doughnut with bristles. It’s not what I think of when I think of a grinding wheel. It’s three dimensional. It’s not one of those cups with wires. For lack of a better picture, I would describe it as a steel sea anemone (with shorter spikes). It’s one of the most agressive looking tools I’ve seen.
Does that sound familiar, and can you identify the tool?
