CabKing diamond laps are used for both rough and fine grinding on stones and glass. They are also useful for putting flats on larger cabs. These electroplated diamond discs come pre-attached to an acrylic backing plate and are available in 6″ and 8″ diameter sizes with a large variety of different grits to choose from.
Our diamond laps are manufactured using the highest quality diamonds to provide you a longer grinding life and clean, faster cutting. They are nickel electroplated using commercial grade diamonds uniformly onto a 1mm thick steel plate. That steel plate is then bonded to a precision ground, 3/8" thick acrylic backing plate. These diamond laps have a long life span because they are made of steel, resulting in the highest quality lap available on the market.
We offer a variety of different grits, ranging from 60 to 3,000. Use these lapidary diamond laps on the left shaft lap adapter on both the CabKing 6" cabbing machine and CabKing 8" cabbing machine to grind flats on stones and glass or to put a flat back on larger cabochon pieces. You can also use them on other cabbing units and lap machines that accept a 1/2" arbor.
All laps have 1/2" arbor holes and come pre-attached to an acrylic backing plate. No additional assembly is required.
Had been using 80 grit lap. Tried 60 grit and the difference is huge. For a real rough stone it is super.
