Post subject:  Help planning lap usage

While waiting for my machine to arrive,
I realized I need to plan out what my prepolish/polish lap sequences will be

I had ordered a pack of laps w/ the machine for a decent price, and I got a gearloose kit on top of that, which leaves with with more laps than I really need.

I'll have a BATT and Darkside lap that I'll probably charge for general purpose final polishing (50k and CeO respectively)

But I also have these which I'm not sure how to make best use of:
Zinc+ lap
Another generic zinc alloy lap
Copper lap
Lucite lap - spare polish lap I guess

I'll have to use one, or maybe two of these to make prepolish laps at different grits for different materials. I guess I'm not sure if there's much difference between a zinc and a copper lap (copper appears to be slightly harder than zinc?)
Anyone have any advice?
