It is necessary to select the right grit lap for getting the grinding job perfectly done on the machine.
Whenever you’re grinding using a lap machine, pressure or force should not be applied on the lap. The process of grinding should be steady and smooth. Otherwise, it may slow down the rotation speed of the lap and as a result may lead to flat spots on the stone.
Ensure that the power supply is disconnected before changing to a different grit size grinding lap on the flat lap machine.
This flat lap machine accepts laps that need to be run with a dewy thin layer of water to reduce the frictional heat while grinding gemstones.
If you’re a beginner, then it is advised to mount the stone onto a dop stick for fine and safe grinding operation. However, if you prefer using your hand then it’s recommended to hold your gemstone with the first four fingers of the dominant hand. This will allow you to have more control while grinding.
