I want to make micro-mosaic pendants using glass stringers. To do this, I will need a flat lap grinder machine to grind down the stringers once glued into the bezel.
I have read some reviews about one brand in particular which seems to get "slammed" almost all of the time.
What do the community members suggest as a very good brand (under $600), either 6" or 8"? Also, I have noted there are flat and slanted styles - any opinions.
Thank you for any advice you offer!
Sometimes it is hard to get a straight answer about the flat laps but I know one older gentleman that has one of the eight inch units and he makes some very nice cabochons on it and likes the unit very much. He does have a separate trim saw so he doesn't need to take the unit apart to cut slabs for new cabochons. I guess it all depends on what you start making cabochons on as to what you like.
