Title: Diamond Paste
Post by: tinker on January 09, 2015, 08:36:58 PM
Okay guys I have just purchased some diamond powder from Aussie Sapphire, can anybody tell me how much powder I should mix with vaseline to make a paste and do would you use this on a small felt wheel attached to a dremel or on a full size polishing wheel.

Hi Tinker,
     I use 15ml vaseline to 5 carats diamond powder mixed well. However a tip is to add a couple drops of baby oil to the diamond powder first, to make it easier to manage. I use it for faceting so full sized wheel but should work on dremel.
