Hi-Tech Diamond sponge pads are to be used under our diamond smoothing discs, Tech-11 polishing pads and final polishing pads to provide a cushion that helps remove flat spots from cabochons. Simply peel the PSA backed sponge pad and apply to a clean backing plate. Then, apply your smoothing disc or polishing pad directly on top of the sponge pad.
6"- and 8"-diameter pads are available. All sponge pads are 1/8" thick and come with a PSA backing for easy application on backing plates.
Why don’t you include these pads with the original cab machine. They are perfect for not leaving any flat spots. I used a 1/2 drill bit to center it on the disc.
Wow that is amazing the way you can get the edge dressed up much easier with these
A must have with smoothing discs. Good price.
Haven't had a chance to use them yet. I'm sure I'm going to be happy with the results. Turned my drill press into a flat lap machine. Eventually I will purchase a real one from Hi Tech...... P.s. rep was very helpful with questions I had during purchase.....
Found it hard to get centered on the backing disk perfectly. Wish I could buy them pre-installed on individual polishing disks. Other than that I think they will only help polishing.
