Bob, you may or may not have been the first, but after gently hinting to me at least three times at the Oregon knife show, I think I may have gotten it this time! :blush:

Thank you....

For Now,

do the stones get clogged after a while? I feel like the 800 and 1000s aren't doing much. thanks for all the help guys it meant a lot .

Yeah they will... Get a squirt bottle or keep a bowl of water in front of your WEPS so you can spray/paint the water on every time you alternate stones or so. It will help prevent this problem not to mention you won't be breathing in abrasive dust and getting it into your pivots (on your folders).
