A Dop station is a Dop station but the extra wide lip for warming up rocks is perfect for lapidary work!
Using it for sanding small glass pieces, some with texture on top. Wax
Stuck to glass and was a pain to remove. Had some issues with the wax not sticking but it may have been user error but I was not willing to put in the effort to correct since I had the other issue.
Also, that wax has a strong smell. Yes, similar to the old days of sealing wax but I am extremely smell sensitive which made this impossible to use.
Dip station works great…way easier than I thought. A must for smaller pieces and big hands
Love it. Easy to use and I still have all my fingertips!
Not only did Hi-Tech Diamond's price beat anything on Amazon or Ebay (at the time of purchase), it made my first try at dopping a stone for cabbing simple and easy. Wax melted in a very short time and stayed at the right consistency throughout my session. The wax held great while cabbing a piece of jasper and, after I was done and put the dopped stone in the freezer for about 5 minutes, the dowel and wax came of cleanly and easily using a utility knife. I have since ordered more wax made by Inland.
