It looks like there is no diamond in that lap. It acts like dry metal.

I think you should return it so I can have a good look at it.

Where are you shipping from?

Again, what was the previous grit used? What was the prepolish?

im no expert on this lap or an expert at anything really but there seem to be some very deep gouges in that and i cant see that happening with a lap unless it had the point of a facet applied to it instead of a flat facet...now that it is gouged the leading edge of the facet may be shaving the ribbons of metal off...

it may also be that my opinion is worth only what i charged for it

shipping from Seattle WA, as for the polish/pre-polish it was 8k diastick on the outside and 100k diastick on the inner band. and it cant be due to a facet hitting the lap due to the fact that im going from pre-polish to polish on the same lap, dont have to change any settings and the problem seems to only be happening on the inner band.
