Cabbing Machines
The Universal is a complete Heavy Duty Grinding and Polishing Lapidary Machine. Designed for production use yet is affordable for the hobbyist. The 5 step accessory kit makes it possible to grind, shape and polish gem material immediately. The 4 step finishing process makes it easy to finish a wide variety of gem material, both natural and synthetic, including quartz, agate, jasper, tourmaline, corundum and opal. Because the Universal is a horizontal lap machine you can grind flats, make free form cabochons, rework quartz crystals, do intarsia and detailed inlay work. 

The Universal is excellent for glass work. Often no fire polish is required. The clean, quiet Universal HD can be used in the house or in a recreational vehicle - Clean up is easy!
