Takes all the work out of lapping. Just load, start & walk away.
Covingtopn vibrating laps are designed to abrade and polish automatically. The inertia of the heavy rock slab holds it relatively still while the lap pan vibrates underneath. This action replaces the circular rotation used by conventional lapping machines. This machine has a grooved pan for fast cutting, a bumper ring to prevent damage to the slabs. A polish pad insert into the grooved pan allows workpiece to be polished in the same pan. One thumb screw releases pan for easy cleaning. Comes complete with 110v, 60hz motor, polishing pad, bumper ring, grooved pan, instructions and guarantee.

This rugged and proven vibrating lap produces precision ground and polished surfaces on slabs, geodes, bookends, and clock faces. Included are two separate cast aluminum lap pans; one for grinding operations and the other for polishing. It has a rubber supported oscillating platform driven at 1600 plus vibrations per minute for optimum lapping conditions. It also has a continuous duty fan cooled motor, and cushioned adjustable feet for years of quite, trouble-free operation. A heavy welded steel frame encloses all working parts. Shipping weight 38 lbs.
Extra 15" polishing pans are $124.95 each
Extra 15" grinding pans are $108.60 each
For producing flat surfaces easily there`s nothing like an oscillating lap! Our redesigned laps use a precision shaft-driven offset that produces a true orbital action of over 1300 cycles per minute. Get flat, smooth surfaces on geodes, bookends and slabs quickly and quietly, without the bounce and splash of ordinary vibrating laps. Our innovative elastomer support system eliminates all of the old-fashioned lap parts - no more springs, balls or cables! The heavy gauge welded steel frame provides great stability and won`t walk around on the floor or bench. Includes cast aluminum grind and polish pans. Comes with heavy-duty bearings & easy to level adjustable feet. Shipping weight 88 lbs.

These heavy-duty laps can accommodate a number of specimens at the same time.
Each machine provides rapid grinding and polishing in circular oscillating motion without damaging the slabbed edges.
The tempered aluminum lap plates are V-grooved in a criss-cross square-grid pattern. This permits abrasive particles to circulate between the lap plate and the piece being worked. The abrasive is being continually crushed to a smaller size while performing its grinding or polishing action. The breaking down of the particles reduces the number of grit sizes needed.
After the bottom side of the workpiece is ground flat to a satin smooth surface, the lap plate can be turned over to the other side on which a polishing pad is cemented. The Workpiece can be put on the pad along with a polishing compound to produce a fine mirror-like finish.
Comes complete with a 1/3 HP 110V 60Hz Motor, one medium Lapmate, polish pad, and galvanized circle.
(Export Models come with a 1/3 HP 220V 50Hz Motor)

These adjustable lead weights hold slabs of almost any shape for vibratory lapping. They have independent adjustable retaining pins to hold a slab in place. Lapping time is reduced considerably because the surface is evenly lapped. The "lapmate" can be left unattended once it is adjusted to proper fit and secured tight.
