Introducing the Diamond Pacific 8RL 8” rotary lap with high torque gear head motor.
This smaller lap machine is great for small flats and flat surface lapping. This portable and affordable lap will fit on most benchtops and in most small work areas. The 8RL Lap machine is capable of polishing most small slabs, bookends and pen stands etc. that would be produced by a small slab saw essential to any lapidary's toolset.
The 8RL was designed around Diamond Pacific's 8” Magnetic Nova Laps. Changing grits with Magnetic Novas is quick and easy, one Magnetic Nova is removed and replaced with a subsequent grit. Since the diamonds are permanently bonded to the work surface of the Magnetic Nova, there's little chance of contamination. The recommended grit sequence for the 8RL is 30, 60, 280, 600, 1200 and 3000 grits followed by Super Premium Cerium Oxide Polish on a felt Pad. Other grit sequences are available and can be used to suit various needs, discs are not included with the machine and can be custom ordered in your preferred grits.
Machine tanks are heavy duty fabricated with powder coating. The 8RL Tank measures 12"x 14" by 17" deep. Overall height is 27". Drip style water reservoir has an adjustable valve to regulate flow of water. The drip spout is easily moved as needed.
