|Diamond whetstones allow fast, clean stock removal, with less effort and time required and can be used on a variety of cutting edges. When using diamond whetstones certain guidelines should be followed to ensure lasting performance.|
All tooling should be cleaned before sharpening, resin build up should be removed with resin cleaner Ref. RESIN/100.
Diamond whetstones require a ¨break in¨ period. Initially the diamond surface will seem coarse and will become smooth over a short period of time to the desired grit.
Do not apply too much pressure. Diamond is extremely abrasive and what would normally take 5-10 minutes on an oil stone will be achieved in approximately 30 seconds.
Use the recommended Diamond Abrasive Lapping Fluid as a lubricant (see below).
Clean diamond whetstones regularly with a cleaning block Ref. DWS/CB/A and do not store in damp conditions.
