We have our 1000, and 1200 stones soaking in water. As we sharpen we will wipe the stones when you can start to see a black slurry (metal shavings). Dunk your hand in water a little and wipe it clean. When we move up to our 4000 and higher get it wet and as you sharpen you have to find a happy pressure otherwise your blade may skip… gotta practice. I agree with jay, just polish the last 1/2” or so…..realistically youre not even using that much…..and if you have a suction problem try less water. good luck
