    A master lap is intended only to support other laps. It’s useful for toppers and polishing films, but not suitable for cutting or polishing by itself.

    If you want to use the aluminum master lap for final polish, you can use a dynalap. They come in many different grits, the blue spectra lap is popular for that. The downside is that it can cause rounded edges on the facets.
