Never tried Johnson Brothers lap discs but I had looked at them before. I have a "nova" like 8" wheel from these guys though, and as it's not as soft as my real Nova's, it does work as specified after breaking in. Just makes a hell of a lot of noise and is still really stiff compared to the real deal.

I will add that Hans lap discs seem to be pretty ****.. I figured I'd try the metal plates, 1200 & 3000, to try to reduce wear on my crystalites. I haven't broken them in yet (hans laps), but right from the package the 1200 cuts like a 180 and the 3000 like a 600. Surprised me.. and I was even running the machine slow. I do like Hans grinding wheels though, for the price.. and free shipping, they grind well.

I have sheets of 1/6" gasket cork-board, and I've been bating an idea around to make some 8" discs and charge with diamond paste. I just don't know where I put them and it's close to packing/moving day.. so they will be found. But that's another idea..
