Re: vibratory lap clean up

Hi, Mark. These are some of the same questions that I asked last fall. While I have not had the chance to put any of these suggestions into practice, yet, I would still like to share them with you. Try using either Pam or petroleum jelly on the backside of the specimens. This should keep anything from permanently sticking. To clean, use a relatively inexpensive power washer. This should take care of the back side. To keep them from playing bumper cars with each other, it was suggested to me to use a thick, wide, heavy-duty office type rubber band around the bottom (widest part) of the rock. The lap itself should clean up with just a good blast from a garden hose (or power washer, again). Like I mentioned, I have not yet put any of these suggestions into practice, but I do plan to start experimenting with them as soon as it gets warm enough here to be doing things outside and get the outside water turned on, etc. But also remember what has been drilled into me: "What works for one person may not always work for another!" Good luck, and let us know what your results are.
