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.

When and how did you get started in stained glass? Ive been interested in stained glass for as long as I can remember. As a child, I would sit in churches and watch the (often) biblical depictions come to life when a stray ray of sunlight cast its illumination our way. Sun shadows dancing. I dabbled in many media over the years, trying to find an outlet for some of the visions careening inside, but none of them took. Drawing, painting - even watercolours - no amount of professional training could guide my hand in a satisfactory way. But then there was the glass. I lived abroad for a few years, and wound my way through Europe on my way back to the States when I finished my Peace Corps Service. My last international destination was Paris, where one of my closest friends lives as an organist. Two beautiful autumn

Chances are, right now, in reading this blog post, youre avoiding an overdue task. I too was avoiding a laundry list of work-related tasks in writing this. Procrastination is a part of life, and its certainly always been a part of mine. As a teenager, my parents would accuse me of putting off everything from piano practice to math homework. Id vehemently deny their charges hissing back, I work better under pressure. The truth was, I often felt overwhelmed, under-productive and anxious. Over the years, Ive been able to combat my avoidance issues using 4 tools. The trick is constantly reminding myself of these actions, because they do not come naturally to me. 1. Just Say No. I say yes to everything. Need someone to head up that event? Sure. Want me to design 12 posters for the Car Wash? No problem. Take your kid to daycare? Of course.
