Source for Diamond stone

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I have a pocket blue DMT diamond stone (which I think is coarse) which I use for on-the-stop deburring.

I'd like to get a medium and fine 100mm stone for use with a file guide for freshing up my edges.

Can anyone suggest a place with decent prices, e.g., Epic and/or PSIA discount?

All Pro Tools has very good prices on all the DMT tools: http://www.allprotools.com/store/dmt_index.htm

The DMT blue is medium or maybe medium coarse. The black is the coarse (maybe called extra course?) I use the black to get rid of bad burrs and the blue as the second pass stone. I then (but not always) finish with the red which is fine.

I find the black to be really awesome. Not quite a file, but really good at cleaning up rough edges, and great to use before filing to get rid of case hardened metal that would eat up the file.

We offer 20% of to Supporters. I'd be interested to hear live expectancy comparisons of DMTs versus MoonFlex or Maplus diamonds to help compare real value. Anyone?

DMT is at the bottom of my list for quality. Moonstones are very good. Swix are better. My quality basis is, ease of cleaning, life span and how efficient a job it does on an edge

I just got one from Holmekol. It is 120 grit, their coursest and awesome. You can buy replacement diamond strips for it that are afixed with an adhesive backing. Absolutly the thickest diamond surface I have seen in a stone. Darn near as good as a file.

If you can find your local area Holmenkol Race Service Rep. He might be able to get you a passcode to get a big discount off of a website purchase. Especially if you are a card carrying USSA Racer, or maybe even just a nice ski enthusist. They have great wax too. Competitivley priced. IMO,There are only really three wax maufacturers that have fast dinosaur wax these days. The red, the yellow and the blue companies. Swix, Toko, & Holmenkol.

IMO, you only need a 100/120 and then a 400and then an Arkansas stone.
