cleaning diamond stones

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Just bought some Moonflex stones based on all the glowing reviews here. How often should they be cleaned? How should they be cleaned? How do you know when they need to be cleaned?

Thanks.

I clean them after 1 or 2 uses. I just use soapy (dish soap) water, a white kitchen nylon brush and air dry them on a paper towel. Never found any need to get more complicated than that.

I clean them after each edge, they get black lines.
Toothbrush. Use the same solution you use for cutting.
50/50 rubbing alcohol-water.

denatured alcohol ... just apply to your rag and wipe stone

while you're tuning just have a cup of soapy water next to you.. and a toothbrush. and when the stones get all full of grey residu, then just dip them in the water and brush them until theyre clean.
its quick and easy and its how we do on world cup

Sounds pretty simple, regardless of the exact method used. Just have to be sure I put my wife's toothbrush back before she notices it's gone. Thanks for the advice.

moonflex diamond stones

how long do they last? i have a set that's sharpened over 150 sets of skis (6 sets in the family; all ski 30+ times a year; two kids who race).

they seem clean, they still work but they have to run out of sharpening power at some point? anyone have any suggestions what that point may be?

thanks
