Thanks for all the input. I was reading around again and figured out my diamond ‘fine’ stone is more like 600 grit than 1k. So I’ve been making a bigger jump there than I thought. I suppose it depends on which charts…It may be closer to 800. Either way, may explain why it always seemed to take more than 10 strokes to polish up like people always say.

I may look at the Ohishi 1k/8k combo, or separate 1k and 8k shaptons….something I will use more because it is less of a hassle. If I had a sink in the garage it would be a non issue…but that is way more expensive than new Stones!
