Hi All

Wow does that bring back some memories. In the late 70s when I was a young teen I started cabbing with a old flat lap and hard disks.I took some of my lawn mowing money and bought a subscription to rock and gem magazine. It did not take long to figure out if you are going to cab on a flat lap a rubber backing is a must. Mt dad cut me some disks out of wood and found some rubber and I started making my flat laps with wet dry sand paper.

I have a jenie for a while now and it is a monster for shaping i still go to the flat lap for finishing.

Thanks for the memories
Happy Easter
