People have been asking about jumps to the Shapton and Chosera stones from the WEPS 800/1K diamond plates and 1200/1600 ceramic plates. Most of what I've written up to this date evolves around the stock 600 as the leaping off point, as it is the highest grit in the package when you purchase your WEPS.

The micron chart used to compare the WEPS, Shaptons and Chosera stones is a very loose guide at best - it only compares abrasive sizes, and does not reveal the maximum results each medium can achieve due to the vast number of combinations of technique, types of scratches, abrasive breakdown, effects of the binder, etc..

So, I've compiled a microscope progression of the 100, 200, 400, 600, 800, 1K diamond plates and the stock 1200/1600 ceramic plates on a knife using my Veho 400.

I will be adding the full Chosera and Shapton Progressions in the next couple of weeks.

It is my hope that this will help visually explain the differences between the choices available for the WEPS.

You can see the Stock diamond and ceramic progression here.

Keep in mind that I am a perfectionist ;)

Enjoy!

Your post is very important and contains information that many memebers will be asking about over and over again. I am going to make this post a sticky so it won't get lost.
Thank you for this and all the wisdom you generously give Tom. Very much appreciated sir.

Best regards
Leo

Hi Tom,

nice post, but I'm not sure about the difference between scrubbing and sweeping motions (Maybe it's clear, but English isn't my native language). Does scrubbing mean up and down and sweeping only up, or is there other difference? Thank you.

Best regards
Lukas

Hi Lukas
A good question! Scrubbing is up and down movement usually with some pressure. Sweeping is a lighter movement up from front to back and/or up from back to front or alternatly both. If you watch one of Clay's videos you will see him use the alternating sweep most often and probably so do most of us. Scrubbing is particularly useful when raising a burr.
Having said this, maybe Tom will jump in and add more or correct me if I have erred.

All the best Lukas :)

Great post Tom. This is the kind of visual that feeds my OCD. Well done. I'm eager to see the difference on the whetstone pics because I know you have nothing but time on your hands to do this!;)

Thank you Leo! It's much more clear to me now. I have found following video . I think that in the time about 3:30 you can see nice scrubbing motion.

Kind regars
