What is lapping? Lapping (or grinding) is a machining technique where an abrasive material is used to cut into and polish the object. Lapping can be used to both obtain a flatter surface as well as a smoother surface, but not necessarily both at the same time. This is a mistake made by many novices. They often assume that a mirror finish denotes both a very flat surface as well as a smooth one. In fact, you can obtain a mirror finish on any surface, whether it's curved or flat.

Heh......

Not sure if we should be "stickying" single links to other sites, but maybe a sticky post for good off site guides?

(I already had this link on my desktop..... :) ).
