Dop Sticks – Why and How We Use Them

Dop Sticks

Using Dop Sticks used for holding gemstones and other materials while grinding, shaping and polishing is a practice that has been around for many, many years. But still there is a little misunderstanding about why we use them and how to use them.

Hopefully, in this video I can shed some light on the subject. While I am not a seasoned lapidary, I have been using them for quite a while cutting Jefaniteā„¢ and other materials, and have developed a technique that I believe can be easily adopted by anybody.

Anyway, in this video I will talk a little about why we use them, what they are made of, how to attach your cabochon and how to remove it.

I hope you find it useful and help with cutting cabochons.
