Re: Scratching Laps

I had that problem once. In my case it was a 600 grit diamond lap. Upon very close inspection, I found that an extremely small black crystal had imbedded itself into the lap surface. Until I used a loupe I didn't see it. After removing the crystal I had no further problems. Sometimes using a dressing stick can fix the problem and sometimes not. My only advice is to get a close look at the surface. Good luck.
