DOMINATRIX: a hybrid BATT™ Prepolish / DIAMATRIX™ Polish Lap

INFORMATION FROM THE MANUFACTURER (Gearloose Lapidary):

The Dominatrix has some unique conditions which are discussed below:

1: BATT/3K (Or 8K) prepolish has been accepted to the point of being a defacto standard for prepolish. As of this date, 8,178 BATT™ are in use for varying applications, including polishing, prepolishing, and cutting. So it is a safe guess that many of these are being used for prepolishing. It works. Everyone knows it works. There is no guessing here.

2: The MATRIX™ has had the fastest acceptance of anything I have made. Despite it being a little annoying that it was not my idea , it has been exciting to see so many positive reponses so quickly. This version of the Dominatrix has the slightly less complex DIAMATRIX version for sharper meets - specially suited for the BLAKSTIK water dispersable diamond polish sticks.

3: I dropped the BATTWINGS because of metal price instability. When I introduced the Xinquings, everyone of course fled to them, because they were affordable. But the drawback in both the BATTWING and the Xinquing is that the user had to choose between two materials, Darkside or Greenway. And there was also the polarity difference between the diamond prepolish on the zinc band and the aqueous media on the polishing center. It troubled people, though there were no adverse affects, because water droplets bounced off the oil medium-coated outer ring. The "Dominatrix" (I have not gotten any hate mail about the name yet) eliminates these difficult decisions. One can still use oxides on the MATRIX Center, but so far the most popular use has been with 60K Diastik. 

The benefits are obvious: 

  • No lap changing between prepolish and polish stages.
  • No height adjustment changes.
  • Faster, more efficient cutting with less chance of error.

 

"What about contamination?"

The only rule is to use the same care you use when switching laps...Wipe the stone clean between operations. Here is why:

1) The film of swarf, carrier, coolant, etc., always moves outward by centrifugal Force. "Downstream" contamination from polish to the prepolish band does no harm.

2) The airflow on the surface of the spinning lap is a complex torus whose movement at the lap surface is an outward spiral, the steepness of which varies with speed. The trend is always outward.
