I attempted to lap my Tuniq Tower, now it's convex! - Page 2

60 grit is overkill. The 60 grit paper has grit that is deeper than the distance from crest to trough of the dips on the heatsink.

So far the 120 grit is working great. I guess I solved the problem by moving to a coarser grain. I was trying to flatten the convexity with 220 grit and what I realized is that the finer grain is only to even out the minor imperfections of the surface, not intended for stock removal.

For now on I will use 120 grit to start.

Stock removal vs. finishing.

Yes I used some really sticky tape and taped the edges at the top and bottom to the glass cutting board. The strips I had were about 12 inches long and 4 inches wide. Worked fine for me. Did not slip and did not chatter.
