Product description

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.

The Slant Cabber lap machine comes with a glass/crystal accessory kit that allows you to work right out of the box. Our grinding and polishing process makes easy work of grinding, shaping and polishing glass and crystal. The electroplated diamond discs are easily interchangeable and only require ONE backing plate for all four discs.

IMPORTANT PURCHASING NOTE: This Slant Cabber comes with an accessory kit that is specially designed to grind, shape and polish glass and crystal. If you plan on polishing rocks, minerals and/or metals, we suggest purchasing the Slant Cabber rock/mineral model.
