The Adamas TabelKube™
Adamas developed the TabelKube™ to allow precise lapping of gemstone tables. The TabelKube™ is initially aligned with the bottom face on a polishing lap, such as the BA5T, Matrix or DiaMatrix by tweaking the radial adjustment or radial position of the dop in the quill to achieve co-planar alignment between the two surfaces.
You then insert the dop fully in and fasten it with the three brass set screws. If the table is already preformed, on an area underneath where the table contacts the lap, spread a drop of oil to form a thin film. Lower the table to contact this area and gently move it over this area and inspect for contact with the table facet. The table should be coplanar within one degree before adjustments. Make any necessary adjustments to the radial and angular orientations so the table is flat-on to the lap. Replace the polishing lap with a cutting lap and you are ready to lap the table.
The TabelKube™ is machined from aluminum alloy for light weight and anodized for durability. The 90 degree lapping position gives you greater comfort by maintaining your palm and wrist in a straight, level position. Think less hand fatigue.
The Adamas TabelKube™ should work with any faceting machine that accepts 1/4 inch dops which can be held securely in the quill. This product ships with a 3 mm. Allen wrench for tightening and loosening the set screws.
TabelKube™ dimensions: 25 mm. square with a 30 mm. long brass 0.25 inch diameter dop.
