By the looks of it, that link goes to a coupon page that updates weekly... and the week when Lmandrake posted for diamond stones is past. I ordered these stones online from Harbor Freight, at the link below. Unfortunately, they're now $13.99 without discounts, but that may still be good deal?

I still think these guys have the best prices for the DMT brand, http://www.allprotools.com/store/page398.html

Harborfreight, you get what you pay for.

Hey, 3 stones for $13.99 you can't beat that deal.

I think I'll stick with the moonflex stones, I may come down to the most bang for the buck. I have been using the same 100grit then 200grit moonflex all season.

There used every ski day that's 66 times this season for just me. I also use them on a friends skis and we sometimes use more then 1 pair a day. She skis about 30 to 35 days a season.

DMTs don't compare to Moonflex.

I'm currently using SVST diamond files which are pretty good quality and a bit expensive. I'll probably replace them with the Moonflex files from SlideWright or Doctor D. At $18 retail, that is about the best price after supporter discounts. I'm pretty sure the diamond files selling at $14 for a set of three are not going to be comparable, but then again, I've never used them. Still, that seems really cheap. Buy these for a friend.

And I, in turn, have never used others, so also can't compare. I don't doubt that those sold by SlideWright and others are best for the purpose at hand... and would've likely gone that route had I not already been pointed to Harbor by another Epic post and purchased, before I started shopping with Terry.

One possible drawback is relatively large size (2"x6"), which fits nicely in hand, but may not easily slip into all edging tools? I don't know how that compares to the "real" stones.

It gets even cheaper, depending on the phase of moon. I got my 3 for $9.99, and the discount that started this thread had them down to $7.99.

Harbor frieght diamond stones would not be my choice for use at a tuning bench, but I carry them on the hill and lend them to students, as I am not very worried about losing them. They will remove minor scratches and burrs effectively.

fall apart

I saw these diamond stones advertised on Harbor Bay. My Uncle has a set. He said that the little elipses of diamond fall off. Good buy for the money though.

I use both Moonflex and Swix. I'd have to say I prefer the Swix. Am I alone in that opinion? I hear little mention of them.
