Ok, so I should get a BAT lap for polishing and some 50,000 diamond?
And what should I use for pre-polish? Seems like people use 3000k on a Darkside?
Can I still cut on a 600 plated lap, or should I cut with 600 diamond powder on a Darkside?
right now I’m cutting on a generic chinese 600 plated lap, then prepolishing with a 600 NuBond which someone told me cuts like a 1200, then polishing on a Greenway lap which is a Gearloose lap that is a chrome oxide composite lap.
I have some big clean tumbled topaz pebbles I can cut (clear and very slightly smokey) — I thought it was hard to cut because of cleavage? It wasn’t on my radar.
