Our American-made Slant Cabber lap machine is a uniquely-angled, flat lap machine that makes an excellent tool for cold working art glass. Grind, shape and polish glass and crystals to make free-form shapes and cabochons for necklaces, earrings, rings and other jewelry pieces. Create polished windows in glass marbles or beads. The Slant Cabber also makes the perfect workbench tool for cold glass workers and glass fusers, as it gives your glass projects smooth edges with a professional, finished look. The Slant Cabber is available in both 6″ and 8″ models and comes with an accessory kit specially designed for grinding, shaping and polishing glass and crystal. If you plan on polishing rocks, minerals and/or metals, we suggest purchasing the Slant Cabber rock/mineral model.

The Hi-Tech Diamond Slant Cabber lap machine is manufactured with a 1/2" arbor and powered by a 1/4 hp, heavy-duty, ball bearing, DC motor. This motor is variable speed so you can work at whatever pace you desire, delivering speeds from 800 rpm to 3,400 rpm. This portable machine can be used anywhere. Whether you’re at home, in the shop or on the road, this quiet machine won’t disturb others around you. It’s lightweight, rustproof and impact-resistant, making it even easier to travel with.

The water reservoir, which holds about a quart of water, prevents heat buildup while you work and removes dust particles so you don’t inhale any harsh chemicals. Our innovative, durable water tube has a water control valve so you can control the water flow while you work. The black splash guard keeps water off you so you don’t get soaked while you work. Cleanup is as simple as it gets: Just flush the bottom water reservoir with clean water and you're ready to work again.

Based on 3 reviews

I have only used this machine twice so there's still a bit of a learning curve but so far I am loving it! I love that I can sit at the kitchen counter and do some of the work. I also love that the 8" plates are roomy and give a nice area to work in. At this point I have only used it for small pieces, mostly jewelry but I am about to make small bowls and am excited to see how that goes with the help of this machine. I have to try to figure out how to get a bevel edge using the cabber. I cannot stress enough how fabulous the customer service has been.....I had soooo many questions and they were all answered patiently and in such a caring manner.

Awesome machine

I Am very happy with my decision to make this purchase. I have been using a belt sander to make cabochons with and this machine makes it so much easier. The variable speed makes working with different density rocks and gems a breeze. The watering system is perfect, the revivor is just enough to force you to take a break, otherwise I would never stop working with it lol ( wife's words not mine lol ) Jenn in customer service was awesome to talk with, as I had a question about the machine, and she returned my call and addressed my issue in a very timely and plesant manner. I have High regards for this company! Good product and customer service, something lacking a lot of businesses these days

Heather Michel

Fantastic, does exactly what I bought it for , smoothing cut wine bottle edges. Fast delivery. Just need to know how long the discs lasts?

Hi Heather - We are so glad to hear that you are enjoying your new Slant Cabber! The electroplated discs will be most aggressive when brand new, and then will settle into a 'broken in' state for quite some time. It is very difficult to say exactly how long the discs will last, as that will depend on the number of bottles, size of the bottles, and technique used. Be sure to do your best to utilize the full surface. Use plenty of water and a steady, but not too hard pressure to get the best longevity from your discs. You may find that you will need to replace the 360# first if that is the discs you spend the most time on. We hope this is helpful!
