Reply To: Poor Man's Diamond Plates


After 4 years of regular use and some abuse (i used the coarse grit to correct a number of badly damaged blades) I just replaced the 240 with a 180, mostly because I wanted a fresh stone. The old one still works well, but not as coarse as I want. It took me all of 5 minutes to replace and $8 for the new diamond stone. I can’t recommend this method enough for the budget minded woodworker.
