BATT LAP. A good, solid cast tin alloy pre-polishing and polishing lap. This hard alloy allows the casting to be rigid enough to serve as a solid lap, rather than the two part tin/aluminum backing. It has proven to be a very popular general purpose polishing lap. 8 inch and 6 inch.

The DARKSIDE is a lightweight lap, made of the specially developed material coated onto an aluminum baseplate, then machined both sides for flatness. For its thickness it is surprisingly rigid. The lap quickly breaks in on the first stone, without the charging process needed for metal laps, making it user-friendly for beginners. A terrific new addition to the gemcutters polishing arsenal. It may very well be the only polishing lap you need! 8 inch diameter only.
