Yikes, I hope I haven’t ruined the lap. It sounds like maybe I am using too much oil. Also I was running my lap a lot faster than 200 rpm. I am using a Diastik instead of powder so maybe they has something to do with it too. I am going to try again today with the slower speed and less oil. I also will try the ink on the facet to make sure I am aligned correctly. Thanks for the tips!
