  • The base of the machine is made of cast Aluminium. It’s durable, sturdy and adds sufficient weight to the machine, which is important to keep it steady and well-balanced while operating.
  • The machine sits on a solid wooden board which is water-proof. This ensures it does not get deformed due to prolonged exposure to water. It further helps to maintain the stability of the machine.
  • The spacing between the lapidary wheels is ample to establish a comfortable working area to perform cabbing on larger stones as well. This allows you to use even side rims of the wheels without any hindrance.
  • The stainless steel hood on the top of the cab machine can be easily raised for inspection, easy mounting/unmounting of wheels, and cleaning, as per your convenience.
  • The left shaft of the machine utilises 2 Hard Diamond wheels ( #100, #260 grits) and 1 Soft Resin Bond wheel (#260) which is the coarsest among other Resin Wheels. The right side shaft of the machine utilises 3 Soft Resin bond wheels (#600, #1200, #3000 grits.) An ideal sequence of wheels is achieved with this placement for the cabbing process. It allows you to begin and move from the leftmost wheel for grinding to the next wheel on right for finer process of grinding and polishing.
  • The shaft is tapped for ½”-20 at both ends to house spin-on polish heads, aluminium laps, diamond facet laps, polish pads, etc. These laps can be mounted by removing the side covers at the ends and then utilise the laps according to your convenience.

WORKING OF CABBING MACHINE:

  • Ensure that the wheels have been mounted in the correct sequence from left to right. We advise coarser wheels on the left and finer ones on the right.
  • Place the pump in a bucket with clean water, connect its pipes to the cab machine and turn it on.
  • Attach the drainage pipes to the machine with one end on the openings on the back of the machine and another end in a separate empty bucket to collect drainage water. You may choose to recycle the same water by using a common bucket for pump and drainage.
  • It’s advised to mount the stone on a dop stick for safety (especially for smaller pieces). However, you may choose to keep the stone in hand if you are experienced or the piece is large enough for cabbing.
  • Turn on the motor and start grinding the cabochon gemstone on the leftmost/coarsest hard wheel. Turn on the water supply for the wheel using the valve on top if required.
  • It’s advised to wear an apron while working to avoid getting drenched in water.
  • Use the adjustable LED light for better visibility if required.
  • Keep checking the stone cabochon intermittently to monitor its shape and polish.
  • Now move to the less coarse hard or a soft wheel for finer grinding and repeat the process.
  • Once done with grinding, move further right to the finer soft wheels for polishing the stone.
