Manufacturer: Hi-Tech Diamond
Availability: Usually ships from Supplier within 3-5 days
Our American-made All-U-Need is a flat lap machine that is one of the best tools for cold working art glass on the market. 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 All-U-Need 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 All-U-Need 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 All-U-Need rock/mineral model.)
The Hi-Tech Diamond All-U-Need 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 coolant reservoir, which holds about a pint of water, prevents heat buildup while you work and removes dust particles so you don't inhale any harsh chemicals. That pint of water will give you two to three straight hours of work without refilling. 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 remove the black spray shield, rinse with clean water and you're ready to work again.
