It works with diamond, so no reason it shouldn't work with SIC. Just won't last very long like diamond.

That's what I was thinking, Phil
BTW, can you get a copy of the Feb '99 issue of Lapidary Digest?
I've been searching for that "lost" Part 2, of the Mystery of Polishing...
and found this a reference to John Sinkankas (on pg 51) also wrote on the chemical polishing theory.

I put a shout out asking if anyone had it. Dave (hulagrub) says he has the author's book on polishinv...and will look into it, Phil.

Steve never did a part 2.  It would have been on their website (the Attaways) and it's not.  I looked high and low for that years ago until I realized that if it wasn't on their website, he never did it.  I may have even seen a reply to a question about that on a faceting forum years ago.  So the article you are looking for is by Sinkankas?  That helps to know what I'm looking for.   :glasses9:
