Do you know if I could use a flat lapidary system to sand small resin pieces? I have been filling an oven pan with water, laying wet sand paper in the pan and using that to sand my pieces down. However this takes too much time and really hurts my hands with as much production as I am doing.
I am looking for a faster way to sand my jewelry pieces that does not require as much wrist movement.
I have tried using a rotary tool but that seems too harsh for my small pieces and I cannot seem to keep a grip on them and they go flying.
Yes, the flat lap is a wet sanding system. Which is way it seems appealing, however the shading discs are made to grind down rocks and minerals. Not sure if the discs would be to harsh for the resin. It is an expensive system, so I am looking for any expertise before I commit to buying one.
I have used these for lapidary work, but not for resin. I would expect it to work, but would suspect the fine grit wheels would be plenty coarse for what you want to do. Perhaps you could find a used one somewhere? I would hate to pay full price for one.
