Hi I'm trying to make up my mind between the 8" and the 12" Crystalite Flat lap. Any insight would be appreciated. I mainly use a flat lap to rough out my cabochons and then I tend to finish them on my expandable drums. I do like to make flat cabochons and these I finish on my Flat lap. I have a cheap Inland 8" at the moment. I find this a bit frustrating to get the finish I want as the diamond discs are not the best. My real question is what benefits does the 12" have over the 8" ? I will try to upload a picture of a cabochon I have cut to give an idea of the type of work I'm using it for. It's a 61mm x 35mm oval cabochon.
Thanks for any views.
