      Dominatrix Polishing Lap

      from $122.00

      The 8" Dominatrix™ is a hybrid BATT™ Prepolish/MATRIX™ Polish Lap. I recommend this lap for production cutting and especially for repairs. It works especially well with my Voodoo Black Magic polish.

      Diamatrix Polishing Lap

      from $105.00

      The DiaMatrix™ is a toughened, hardened version of the Matrix™ polishing lap, but with a lower complexity that forces a high concentration monolayer on the surface of the lap, providing significantly sharper meets and flatter facets. It is optimized for diamond use, and in particular, for use with Voodoo Magic Faceting Polish.

      Matrix Polishing Lap

      from $95.00

      The "MATRIX™" is a Ceramic Composite polishing with what the creator calls "a self-renewing microtexture and surface complexity that allows better polish retention and a less critical fluid film thickness". This is the Corian lap on steroids! This is now our #1 recommended lap for new faceters.

      Lightside Polishing Lap

      from $78.00

      The LIGHTSIDE™ is a specialty lap with a smooth, durable surface and a remarkably low frictional coefficient against the stone to minimize heating effects to make it especially useful for polishing soft and delicate stones such as rhodochrosite, fluorite, apatite, diopside, sphalerite, and strontium titanate.

      Greenway Polishing Lap

      from $78.00

      The Greenway™ is a Chrome Oxide Ceramic Polymer Composite lap that requires only water. It is a non-fouling (won't pack cracks) lap that will polish many, many materials. Polish-embedded laps are slower than using oxide polish ON a lap, but they are more "dummy-proof".

      Darkside Polishing Lap

      from $72.00

      The DARKSIDE™ is a lightweight lap, made of the specially developed material coated onto an aluminum baseplate.

      Creamway Polishing Lap

      from $78.00

      The Creamway™ polishing lap is a Zirconium Oxide/ceramic polymer "Just Add Water" lap. The polymer has further been modified to allow exceptionally high oxide loading. In my opinion, this is currently the most "dummy-proof" of Quartz polishing solutions. It is a good bit slower than using an oxide polish on a lap - but also less sensitive to imperfect technique.

      BATT Polishing Lap

      from $100.00

      The BATT special alloy polishing lap is one of my favorite laps for materials harder than Mohs 8. Many people use the BATT with my Voodoo diamond polishes, or with loose diamond. I often double-charge these for doing repair work (2 different diamond grits, a prepolish on outer ring and polish on the interior).

      BA5T Polishing Lap

      from $150.00

      The BA5T special alloy polishing lap is my personal go-to lap for materials harder than Mohs 8. Many people use the BA5T with my Voodoo diamond polishes, or with loose diamond.
