KING ARTHUR TOOLS MERLIN 2 BACKING PAD ASSEMBLY
King Arthur’s Tools developed the Hexagonal Threaded Connector (HTC) to fit Quick Change (QC) accessories to the Merlin2® miniature angle grinder. The introduction of the HTC opened the door to the addition of many more incredible aftermarket QC accessories to Merlin2® and greatly expanded its versatility. The HTC has very quickly allowed the grinder to become a crossover tool for into several different industries. Primarily manufactured from heavy duty rubber and stainless steel, this 2"(50mm) diameter HTC backing pad threads into the central gear head of Merlin2® and has a half turn on, half turn off holder that secures a myriad of small useful tools.
We added several select quick change items to enhance the grinder’s capability and expand the user’s creativity, production and experience. The HTC backing pad now securely attaches 3M Roloc™ bristle discs, QC aluminum oxide sanding discs, polishing, surface conditioning/ preparation consumables.
The Hexagonal Threaded Connector (HTC) Backing Pad Assembly includes backing pad, wrench, nut and washer. It’s a must-have accessory to expand your Merlin2®’s capabilities with exciting new products at relatively low cost.
One of our more pleasant surprises has been the huge acceptance of the green and yellow bristle discs by woodturners worldwide. During R&D we discovered its many uses in wood when previously it had only been a metal working accessory. The bristle discs have proven to be phenomenal in uneven, knobbly wood applications. Without the HTC on Merlin2®, this stirring development would not have been possible.
