Frequently asked questions
What is Power Carving?
Power Carving is English and describes carving (usually with wood) using electric tools, such as the angle grinder. The “power” stands for the tools powered by electric current and the “carving” for the carving, milling or grinding work.
Power Carving is enjoying increasing popularity and is, if you like, the entry or the precursor to Chainsaw Carving, i.e. carving with a chain saw.
Power Carving describes the shop’s assortment very well, because here you will find many tools, adapters and attachments for woodworking with the angle grinder and other electrical tools.
Tool and safety
The vast majority of tools in the shop are designed for woodworking, but most also work on other soft materials such as rubber, foam, soapstone, polystyrene, fiberglass plastics and polycarbonate. Some tools are even partially suitable for aluminium processing or also stand back embedded screws and nails.
There are a number of measures that we consider important and sensible.
First, the workpiece should be secured against slipping or tilting so that both hands can remain on the device.
Protective devices on the devices (such as the hand protection on the angle grinder) should not be removed.
Although the devices are often described as one-handed angle grinders, we strongly advise to operate the device with both hands, so make sure that no hand can get close to the rotating and milling parts and that the tool is safely in the hands.
Personal protective equipment should in any case include goggles and hearing protection
We also recommend wearing gloves that protect against the strong chip throwing of some of our tools.
We also recommend a dust protection mask, as some of our tools cause high dust generation on certain materials.
If you have purchased your electrical tools, such as the angle grinder or the straight grinder in the EU, then it is quite certain that the items from our shop should fit on the equipment. Please read the item description before purchasing. The also says which devices the item fits.
If it is still not possible to determine whether the discs and cutters fit, please contact us by phone or email.
The tool life is difficult to determine on a flat-rate basis. However, we can say from experience that you save significantly on the service life compared to conventional abrasives, especially if you work a lot with fresh woods
In addition to the long service life, the improved machining of the workpieces with the discs and cutters is also a criterion for the economic balance of our articles compared to conventional means.
