Fingerstones challange

Fri Nov 29, 2013 11:35 pm

Howdy,

Just got two packs of fingerstones from Mark, mostly Shapton Pro and some odds. The only Shapton pro I have is the 15K, but I am trying to identify the rest. Any guesses would be welcome.

My guess is as follows:

220, 320, 1K, 2K, 8K, (I be damn), 15K, (5K or 30K - just dunno)
natural, pink magik, 2K, Imanshi 8K or 10K, 15K, square thing, some Nubatama

Wow, that looks like a fun sampling of stone's. I'd just be guessing with each one though.

A close-up of each would probably help a lot.

The reason I got the stones is because of the purple stones (got two packs of stones just to increase my odds, and received two purples). I am not 100% sure if they are 30K (they feel like it). I will test that out with on a wide bevel chisel and look at the pattern with a magnifier. If the finger stones improve my plane blades, then I will get a full size 30K soon enough (there are a ton of people who don't know what to get me for Christmas, so the damage won't even be mine)

The grit was wrote on my finger stones when I got them.
