Re: Polishing disk

Hi Jenny
All I can say is you have your hands full. What I would recommend is a side mounted flat lap on your grinder. I have and old Graves Cab-Mate I use to teach new-be�s on. It has a 6 inch side 90deg flat lap that relative inexpensive. I use a 5 inch diamond cab-dish 80 or 100 grit to rough out the cab�s and that is as far as the club is on the hook. After that 6 inch flat ply-wood disk about 3/8 inch thick with a � inch of foam rubber glued to the ply-wood, everything else is done on the ply-wood disk both the wet or dry silicon carbide 6 inch sanding disk and the diamond on top grade cowhide 6 inch leather disk for polishing.

I start with 220, 400, than 600 wet or dry silicon carbide 6 inch sanding disk. After they have gone trough 600 they switch to the diamond 1,200, 3,000, 8,000, and 14,000 on top grade cowhide 6 inch leather disk. The important thing is each club member has their own silicon carbide 6 inch sanding disk and top grade cowhide 6 inch leather disk with the diamond to charge them with. You not talking about a big investment for each club member under $50. but they will take better care of them.
