My old crystalite laps are wearing out and I'm looking at getting some sintered laps. Does anybody know who generally makes the best sintered laps as if this moment?

I do not believe there are many choices out there. I own Cystalmet laps myself. Adamas, Marsh and the hyper edge are the only sintered laps to choose from outside going overseas.I may be miss informed though.

Marsh and hyperedge sell just polymer bonded. Adamas sells mostly metal bonded sintered wheels and one resin-bonded diamond wheel.

I use an 8" Crystalmet 1200 that I picked up on sale several years ago - went 30 years using the lousy metal bonded...

Suppliers/makers of metal bonded sintered laps that I could find quickly:
