For a start, it’s not a Dremel! MERLIN2® is a miniature, long neck angle grinder available in both variable speed and fixed speed, 110-115 volt and 220-230 volt models. We have a wide selection of sets available ranging from basic entry level to professional. The difference is the type, range, usage and volume of the many accessories included to suit the many markets that use the Merlin2® grinder. For information on the characteristics and qualities of the individual accessories, please refer to the specific items. All accessories are also sold as replacement parts.
Merlin2® has added the versatility of traditional air powered accessories to the convenience of a fixed and variable speed electric power tool. It eliminates the need for an air compressor with the ability to attach more than 65 accessories. Portable and versatile, it is a Wizard of a Tool for creating shapes, textures and getting into hard to reach areas. Merlin2® is an excellent choice for woodturning, wood carving, metalwork, miniature woodworking and finish work. It is also used in taxidermy and hooftrimming!
As woodcarvers and sculptors are big users, we can say with certainty that carvers who have been working on a smaller scale will enjoy the rapid, yet controlled stock removal that large-scale carvers have enjoyed for years. Using the famous 2” (50mm) 8 tooth “Smallest Chainsaw in the World” it’s great for miniature work like carving spoons and small bowls, or for details on faces and feathers. But we don’t recommend using this set for carving huge free-form bowls, sculptures, totem poles or the like. We have other tools you’ll love for those massive projects! It’s terrific for carving, shaping and sanding in difficult, hard to reach places. Using a wide range of 2" (50mm) tungsten carbide accessories with different grits and profiles, you can remove material, smooth, outline and finish shape in tight areas that previously had to be carved and smoothed by hand. All accessories have a 10mm arbor. A variety of many other 2” (50mm) disc accessories are available to fit Merlin2®. From specialty cutters and Roloc™ options to a wide range of sanding/finishing products and grinding wheels - King Arthur’s Tools offers the widest range of over 65 specialty accessories that makes Merlin2® an incredibly useful and versatile power tool. Our selection also covers Hook & Loop, 3M Roloc™, Quick Change, Surface Conditioning and Bristle Disc attachments with the addition of the HTC Backing Pad.
Tungsten Carbide Accessories. When Tungsten and carbon unite they become Tungsten Carbide, one of the hardest of all carbides made. This very hard material is commonly used for the tips of tools, especially cutting tools and grinding tools. Tungsten carbide coated tools are extremely long lasting and can be used for sanding and the surface treatment of a wide range of materials. Carbide's long life and effective sanding qualities save considerable time and improve results. Carbide is the name of a sintered metal (tungsten) - an extremely hard metal having approximately 98% of the hardness of an industrial diamond. The abrasive consists of grains of carbide of a particular size depending on the purpose, which is bonded onto a steel base.
