Store Progress

Posted by Keith on 11/11/2017 to News
Hi everyone, been a year since we started our little enterprise. Been quite a few challenges along the way. As many of you know we recently upgraded our webstore host to offer more features. For the most part it went pretty smoothly during the changeover. There has been a drop in store traffic but all in all we are pretty happy. As you can see we are constantly increasing our product range to offer a diverse range for all Lapidary hobbies. Along the way we picked up a couple of key brands to be authorized dealers for including Diamond Pacific and Crystalite. Our latest stock additions include DeBeers Diamond Powders and Diamond Pacific Diamond Compound. There are more products in the pipeline so keep on visiting our store. Don't forget we have a rewards program so the more you spend with us the more you can save. Cheers and Rock On.

Dopping and Heating Plate

Posted by Keith on 12/25/2016 to News
Finally got around to making a heating plate for dopping my stones at home. Had some aluminium checker plate left over, cut into a triangle, used some shelf brackets I had, attached with rivets and bobs ur uncle. Works well, perhaps a little too well, stones got real hot real quick. But just need to take care, heat wax up before putting stones on plate.

Home Built Sander/Polisher

So the next machine is pretty much completed. Couple of springs to fit to keep belt tension and prevent motor jumping and its all done. Definitely makes a difference that the speed is significantly lower the the grinding machine for polishing. Going to put a cover over motor and belts too for safety. Rock On.
