The Merlin

On the heels of the World’s Largest Chainsaw, we’d like to show you the “World’s Smallest Chainsaw” — the Merlin from King Arthur’s Tools. The Merlin combines their 2″ diameter, eight-tooth saw chain with a Proxxon long-neck angle grinder.

What can you do with the World’s Smallest Chainsaw? You can remove light stock smoothly with excellent control and get into hard-to-reach areas that would be difficult with larger power carving tools. You can also change out the disc, using the included Allen key and the spindle lock button, with one of King Arthur’s Tools’ other available 2″ discs — you can convert the Merlin for cutting, sharpening, deburring, grinding, sanding, or finishing.

King Arthur’s Tools offers the Merlin with either a higher-power fixed-speed motor or a variable-speed motor. Both models come with the Proxxon grinder, a 100-grit flap-disc wheel, a silicon carbide grinding disc, an aluminum oxide cutting disc, a tungsten carbide coarse grinding disc, and, of course, the eight-tooth chainsaw disc — all packed in a custom molded case.

Depending on where you look the Merlin will cost you $190 to $240.

    I made one of these, sort of.

    I was digging 30″ deep post holes for a new privacy fence, and of course on a few of the holes about 24″ down I hit some MASSIVE tree roots. I can’t get my hands down there, too deep. So I mounted a 4 1/2″ circular saw blade on my angle grinder, then duct taped and zipt-tied my angle grinder to a long piece of 1 1/2″ PVC tube (for a long extended handle).

    WORKED AWESOME. Chewed up those massive roots at 10,000 RPM.

    Got the non variable speed one. This angle grinder is all sort of awesome… Slightly less noisy than a full size one. Excellent control I use it all the time to smooth scrap metal before machining them.

    Best accessory ever. But I don’t have the chainsaw blade…
