Wooden Lapping Sticks
Wooden lapping sticks are used for final polishing on mould tools and dies.
They are used as a carrier for diamond compound to create a high mirror finish on most metals but mostly steel.
Wooden lapping sticks can be used either by hand or with a reciprocatory tool such as a Diprofil which can significantly speed up the process.
Using lapping fluid helps to lubricate the process and can also help bring on a better shine on steel.
A low cost but high quality option.
Round sticks have a pointed end making them ideal for getting into detail and tight areas.
Sold in packs of 10, choose from hard or soft wood.
Hardwood is slightly faster cutting, softwood is generally used with finer diamond compound for finishing.
Felt lapping sticks could also be used afterwards for polishing.
