A Flat Lap Grinder is designed to grind flat glass surfaces or smooth straight edges on fused glass pieces. Unlike tabletop grinders, lap grinders are equipped with flat grinding or polishing discs.
Laps come in various grits allowing heavy glass removal or surface smoothing operations to be carried out.
Fiber polishing pads can be fitted. Different grades of diamond polishing compound can be used with these pads. This type of lap is designed to produce a very polished finish.
