Cutting and polishing, where
« on: November 01, 2023, 12:03:54 PM »
Hi all, just a question regarding cutting and polishing slabs of the medium to large catagory(10-30cm) Does anyone know of anyone providing a service for cutting and polishing in the south east qld region or close ish. Happy to pay $1 a sqaure inch for cuts and same for lapping. Harder than you might imagine to find someone, dont recommend gem clubs as they don,t have the capacity, at least the lismore, gold coast, and beenliegh  ones don't. All decent advice appreciated.  :)

All I can think of is a monumental mason, a gravestone maker.

Polishing I'd use those resin velcro diamond pads. Work well, I've done granite benchtops and large stones with them. But I really doubt you'll find anyone to lap and polish at $1 per square inch.
