I just finished building a 10" flat lap :>)
Mine has no center hole because it uses a magnetic pad to hold down
the steel based diamond laps I use… means I can use the whole
surface for lapping… way cool.
Some of the parts I needed came from Covington Engineering Corp.
715 West Colton Avenue
P.O. Box 35
Redlands, CA 92373
no web site so far.
They have finished machines as well as parts & kits for building
I love to design and build machines and mine is working most
Another source for discount lapidary products, diamond saw blades,
carving burrs, tools and polishes is Daniel Lopacki Co.
www.lopacki.com (I designed this web site and am web master for it
BE FORE WARNED lapidary is addictive… you will discover that
there are not enough hours in the day as the WHOLE WORLD is rocks
just waiting to be finished and set :>) and then of course there is
setting them … hmmmmmmmmmmm
maybe Hanuman should assist us in starting a 12 step meeting for gem
