Sintered 6" Diamond Lap #80 Grit - Auscut (exclusive to Aussie Sapphire and as supplied by Gearloose)
Recommended for the professional gem cutter - not cheap but unsurpassed performance.  Sintered diamond laps will outlast electroplated laps many times over.  Exclusive to Aussie Sapphire in Australia (imported from Canada) with more diamond for better value.  We have switched to this supplier after some disappointing experiences with Inland Lapidary with quality control and supply - initial reports are very positive (check out this video review)
If you have wanted a Sintered Lap but have been put off by the high price, this professional quality lap will keep you cutting at an affordable cost.  A great investment in your faceting equipment - recommended for professional or serious hobby cutters. 
Key Features:
  • Full 3mm deep diamond matrix exposes new cutting points as the lap is used.
  • Recommend "sweeping the lap from side to side" when cutting to ensure even wear.
  • Use plenty of water while cutting with this lap to clear swarf and cool the lap/stone.
  • Dress the lap well with dressing stick supplied prior to first use and afterwards as required to "refresh" cutting action.
  • Clean and store dry when not in use.
Markings on lap - #80 grit lap is marked with diamond micron range "100 125" - also marked with 40 representing the amount of diamond in the lap (in carats). The lap is also marked with the date of manufacture (month.year).
Master lap is not required with this lap.  
145mm or ~6" diameter, 18mm overall thickness with sintered layer 3mm thick and 10mm thick outer edge. Centre hub is recessed to fit lap nut (40mm diameter for centre recess).  Standard ½" hole to suit any standard faceting machine.  Lap is quite heavy at approximately 1.35 kilograms (laps are balanced at the factory for smooth running).
