British Lap Dressing Video

The latest episode of World of Faceting machines is up. This time we are examining the technique used to dress and prep the cutting and polishing laps on the antique jambpeg machines used by professional gem cutters in England. I think you’ll be surprised to see how they do it!


Hey Justin,
Wow! I remember one day I was said to be stupid because I used a brickstone to flatten out an old and uneven wall before applying a new plaster finishing.
But hey: it worked… so little did I care
Can one believe the use of bricks can even be highly effective in bringing new life to something as delicate as a polishing lap… not something I would come up with I guess…
A great example of out of the box thinking, great video again!
