Model R1M commercial grade 1 meter (39 inch) diameter reciprocating flat lap for production lapping and polishing. Includes 110 lbs of coarse grit and 55 lbs of fine (400 graded grit) for the perfect grinding and polishing process.
Motor: 1/2 horsepower Nema 56 motor.
Pulleys: The pulleys are heavy duty cast iron and will not wear out prematurely like the cheap die cast zinc pulleys commonly used by other manufacturers
Main Shaft and Bearings: The main shaft is a massive 1 3/4" diameter and has heavy duty pillow block bearings that support all the rotating parts.
Spider and Spider Bearing: The spider supports the main plate and is connected to the main shaft with the heavy duty cast iron flange type spider bearing. This design of the spider allows the unit to be leveled easily and for ease of mounting the main plate. The spider is suspended by heavy chains from the main frame.
Main Plate: 1 meter (39 3/8") diameter, 10mm (.39") thick steel plate that is reversible, so the plate can be flipped to use the second side.
Bumper Ring: The durable steel bumper ring prevents the workpieces for colliding with the sides of the main plate.
Main Frame: The R1m frame is made from heavy duty steel U channel, welded solidly with reinforcement gussets at all the typical strain points to insure frame integrity. Unlike many reciprocal laps on the market the Highland Park Lapidary R1M has 3 legs, which makes leveling and balancing the unit much easier than the typical 4 leg configurations.
