Glass Stones 2 years 3 weeks ago #3799

I just pulled off my 50 / 60 stones and swapped them over with glass for installing sandpaper onto
glass shop only charged $1 a stone
works a treat

used my 2000 / 3000 / 6000 grit paper from my edge pro system on it


would make a nice option for kits as its cheaper to get polish tape then full stones for each grit

worked out around 10 cents a stone and polished 3 knifes before they showed wear

Yeah, Ken Schwartz was working on glass plated to go onto the weps paddles with a diamond lapping film.... Haven't heard anything more about it though. Personally I think it's a great idea!

So do I. I was trying to figure a mount for PSA sheets. These would be great.

Hey guys, I don't have any PSA sheets or don't use sandpaper, but why are you looking for glass or plexiglass backings? I understand it is a little flatter than aluminium, but so much that it matters in practice? Wouldn't an aluminium strip backing work as well?

Aluminum would probably work fine but I think glass would be better. Are you thinking "cost"?

My .02, having used both, yup it matters. Flat aluminum is surprisingly not that, flat,,, and flattening it isn't as much fun as you'd think. ;)
