Scallop Edged Polishing Pad

      A polish pad with irregular edges that is being used to
minimize surface defects caused by transition zones and constant
pressure points is disclosed.

      The figure shows one interpretation of irregular edges where a
sinusoidal wave is used.  A random wave, gear tooth wave, or square
wave could also gain the desired affect.
