The Beginner Lap Bundle
Beginning faceters often wonder which laps to start with. Adamas answers the call by offering two versatile laps to provide almost universal pre-polishing and polishing.
The Matrix was developed by Adamas founder, Tom Smith, to provide faceters with a predictable polishing session, flat facets and linear facet meets.
This lap has a permanent microporous surface which accepts oxide or diamond powder for a fast polish at slow lap speeds and a narrow sweep.
The Matrix lap can polish gem materials 6 Mohs and harder without the possibility of scratching due to contact with a hard lap surface.
The Zinc+ chargeable lap is the most aggressive of all laps at removal of material. Charge this lap with 1,100, 1,500 or 1,700 mesh diamond compound for a surface finish ready for polishing.
Charge it with 3,000 or 4,000 mesh diamond for a finer pre-polish on competition stones.
Adamas offers these two laps at a nice bundle price.
Overall Depth: 1/3" (8 mm.) for 8" lap, 1/4" (6 mm.) for 6" lap
