We have a massive amount of Edge Pro products so we figured it would be good to have a whole section on how to use the machine and what to use on it.

Best options for flattening Chosera stones?

Fri May 18, 2012 8:22 pm

Greetings!

I have the EdgePro Apex with Chosera stone set. Recently, I've noticed that my stones are dished out. I also noticed you don't carry the EdgePro stone leveling kit.

What is the optimal way to flatten my stones (probably a pricy diamond stone)? What is the best way on a tight budget?

Thank you!

Wet sandpaper on a piece of glass....

Optimally Atoma 1200 for finer stones & Atoma 140 for the low grits.

Be smart - buy once.......

Hi James,

There are a variety of methods. We did sell the Edge Pro flattener but I didn't like it. Big, heavy and messy to use.

There are a bunch of options to flatten. My friend Rookie mentioned a couple and they are good. In addition there are a couple other ones you should consider:

These are a few others:
The DMT XXC is the best selling plate we sell for flattening. Even, flat and long lasting.

This is another diamond flattener that is a little smaller and much less money:

This is a smaller one than the other 2 but it's 2 sided and it works on the Edge Pro for reprofiliing.

The Atoma is also available here:

We don't sell sandpaper but you can get it at a hardward store. Get 120 grit wet dry sandpaper. It is cheap up front but if you sharpen a lot you will be better off with a diamond plate.

Sandpaper works, but make sure you scrub the stone a bit after flattening to make sure there's no cross contamination.

I prefer the Atoma's, but they are more expensive. The DMT are not bad at all and if the Atoma plates weren't available, I would still use them today.

Thanks all!

I used sandpaper yesterday, it was a bit slow but effective. I'll likely save up for the Atoma plates.
