Abrasives are used in successively finer steps to remove material from the specimen, until the required result is reached. This process can broadly be divided into grinding and polishing.

10 Best Angle Grinders For Cutting, Polishing,

Angle grinders are arguably the most versatile power tools you will ever have in your toolbox.. They are also the most overlooked by handymen at home. Most people take them for heavy construction tools used only in workshops, garages, or auto repair shops, but angle grinders are also perfect for you need to do a wide range of applications, including cutting, grinding or polishing

Determination of growth in bony fishes from otolith

2021-2-17  Preparing sections for polishing is a two-stage process. First the otolith is ground down to the desired plane and polished to eliminate any surface irregularities. This is a painstaking process, the grinding plane must be constantly checked to avoid overshooting the nucleus or wearing away the otolith
