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.
