The "Slant Cabber" is an angled flat lap machine available in 6" and 8" diameter size - this item is the 6" Package.

You can grind flats, re-work quartz crystals, or make millimeter and free-form cabochons.
The 4-step accessory kit makes it a complete package making it possible for you to grind, shape and polish gem material immediately. The 4-step process makes easy work of finishing quartz, agate, jasper, tourmaline, corundum, and opal, plus a wide variety of gem material both natural and synthetic.
The unique, angled design provides improved visibility and allows you to sit while you work instead of standing.  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.
Fitted with an Australian 3 pin plug to suit our local power supply.

  • Variable speed ball bearing DC Motor with 115/220 VAC converter
