Marathon Split Laps are made of 100% Australian wool steamed and pounded to form an evenly dense lap to provide consistent finishes from lap to lap. These high quality, rock-hard grade laps measure 4" diameter x 1/2" thick with pinhole center. Maximum operating speed: 3,450rpm. Made in India.
Split and beveled laps are very popular with jewelers. Used on a horizontal polishing machine (lapping machine) with the flat side down, the polisher can "see through" the slits as the wheel turns. This allows for pinpoint precise polishing and is especially effective in polishing flat surfaces, angles and corners with no distortion.
