I'm just getting into doing my own tuning. I can purchase 3 smaller diamond stones for the price of 2 large ones. Does it make more sense to go with 3 grits of the smaller stones or 2 grits of the larger?
Is there any way you can afford 3 of the 100mm's ? If not and you go with the 70mm's instead, I'd recommend red 200, yellow 400, and white 600. If you get just 2 of the 100mm's get the red &yellow.
During use, lubricate with water, or even better SVST's secret sauce. I get the big bottle and make a 50/50 mix with water, as it is kinda spendy. Clean with a toothbrush, warm water, and a mild dishsoap (half a drop will do). Rinse--then dry...after each use. This will extend their life/effectiveness greatly
Moonflex stones are worth every penny.

Yep..it's the "travel" size. I have the blue 1600 as well. The moonflex stones are IMO (and MANY other's as well) are simply the best--cutting and polishing action is achieved....they last a long time as well.
