Don't Lose The Lap Powder

To keep from losing a large share of heavy grinding powder off of the lap and into the drip ~ try beeswax. Before starting heavy lapping of flats, cover the surface with a thin coating of melted beeswax applied with a brush. One coat will last for several lappings and can be reused for final lapping. It is necessary only to rub the lap with beeswax to hold the powder.
