Product Description

Professional Grade Grinder and Polisher
The CrystalMaster Pro 12 Lap Grinder is designed for the serious hobbyist and professional. No other machine does what a lap grinder can do. It will give your glass project a professional finished look with ease. It can even give a smooth edge to large projects like the 18" fused table top shown above. A must for the serious cold glass worker and fuser!

The giant 12" capacity is perfect for cold working fused glass pieces, and its variable speed means this machine can go slow to fast for perfect grinding and polishing. The system uses 4 magnetic backed discs for quick changes in mesh sizes. Use with a direct water supply, or add the recirculating pump as an option. Runs on standard 120 volt household current. One year manufacturers warranty.

This Professional Kit includes everything you need to get started: The CrystalMaster Pro 12 Lap Grinder / Polisher, three 12" diamond laps (120, 400 and 600 grit), and a 12" Polypad urethane fiber pad. Recirculating Submersible Pump, item #42561, sold separately. 120 volt.

For additional details and instructions for setting up the recirculating pump system view the Setup Guide in additional images. 

Lap grinder also sold separately in 220/240V version. View the pricing and information for the 220/240V grinder only.

Pros : What a dream to use this grinder. Easy to change pads, easy hook up to water source. Cut my grinding time down to practically nothing. Wish I had saved my money and bought this grinder in the first place, rather than trying for the less expensive one.
Cons : Still some water splatter, but a plastic apron helps!
Other Thoughts : I agree with other reviewer: need an intermediate pad for grinding out scratches.

How and when did you get started in glass art? I saw an article about Kristin Frantzen-Orr along with a step by step example of how to do one of her famous floral beads. I talked about it so much my husband bought me a beginning torch set for the following Christmas. Once I got the kiln and the duel fuel torch, I just kept experimenting and growing from there. Kristin is still my idol and I keep telling myself that one day I will do nice, clean floral beads like hers. Your jewelry, vases, plates etc. are all beautiful. I especially love the geologic nature of your Copper Reactive dish, its so unique. Can you tell us a little about how you achieved that look? The base glass is Bullseye Steel Blue Opal (000146) and it reacts all on its own. I used clear stringers and broke up chunks

We tell ourselves not to judge a book by its cover, but the simple truth is, we are attracted to whats attractive. On a recent hunt for a birthday present for my mother, I came across several beautiful handbags in several different boutiques. What ultimately influenced my final purchase decision was the complimentary gift-wrapping offered by one of the storeowners. The handbag itself wasnt any prettier or better quality than the others I was considering, but the packaging was beautiful. Brightly colored tissue, a big sturdy box, quality wrapping paper and an oversized hand-tied bow. No, it wasnt sealed with a kiss, rather a large gold embossed sticker with the boutique name and logo (theres nothing wrong with a little discreet self-promotion). Here are a few tips for better packaging-it might just buy you your next customer. 1. Show your customers what theyll get. The boutique I mentioned earlier had

Delphi merchandiser Kayleigh McGrath recently shared some photos from her early days at Delphi. She was playing around with different colors and textures of glass and learning the hard way that there are limits to what you can do (and cant do) in fusing. The first image shows what happened when Kayleigh layered dichroic glass, coating to coating. The base is 90 COE dichroic rainbow pixi stix on black, (Delphi item 921714) and the top is an old texture we dont carry any more (cyan red radium on clear.) The second image is of a piece Kayleigh loved so much she impatiently removed it from the kiln when it was still too hot (havent we all done this. ) As you can see, it suffered thermal shock. This was made with the same 90 COE pixi stix on black for the base and capped with Delphi item U630090 90 COE
