Description

For the four other people on the planet who manually lap petrographic thin sections. This holder is sized for 27mm x 46mm x 1.27mm petrographic slides.

Little indentations for fingers prevent knuckle rolling and subsequent abusive epithets...

Have you tried different materials? Which work best?
Yes, I have a good friend engaged in creating 'stained glass' from thin sections sandwiched between polarizing film. Can't wait to see the results...
Great idea.
(But it takes all the fun out of polishing away your finger tips... )

Instructions

Print, use and enjoy less wrist and knuckle trauma!

Updated SCAD and stls - now have a holder with just a single indent in the center, one with indents on opposite corners and the standard, two indent holder. Also found that thinner holder facilitates manipulation of slide - can apply pressure where needed.
