“I hope you enjoy using this set as much as I am excited to be a part of this new range of products. This tool opens up new possibilities. It’s faster, more efficient and the finish happens in seconds instead of hours.” – Nick Agar

* There are two sets, Basic and Premium. The only difference between the Basic and the full Signature Series is that the Basic set includes one tungsten carbide All-Surface 3 Edge flat profile fine green disc and excludes the full set of four All Surface 3 Edge Carbide discs. We introduced this set following great demand from, and listening to, a multitude of woodturners around the world who loved using the fine green disc.  We have also made this Basic Signature Series more affordable.

Both sets are powered by the MERLIN2® variable speed, mini angle grinder and include a special selection of custom-designed accessories, some developed exclusively with Nick by King Arthur’s Tools. The mini grinder’s variable speed also gives you excellent control over every one of the accessories – from slow to fast speeds, you’re in the driver’s seat!
