The Lap-Sharp uses a variety of abrasives for shaping and honing different types of metal, tool shapes, and types of tools. In addition to the shaping and honing processes, the fine abrasives polish metal. Two of the fine abrasives are Aluminum Oxide impregnated Polishing Paper. These abrasives are capable of providing a near mirror polish. The slow rotation of the abrasive generates less heat than one would develop with a high speed buffer. A soft buffing wheel can be attached to the Lap-Sharp turntable for use as an optional buffing tool, using standard polishing compounds or rouge.
