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.

Sadden, whats the reason for the Atoma 400, 600 and 1200 stones?http://www.chefknivestogo.com/stsetwiunhob.html
is the 140 plate on this the same as the 140 atoma plate?
Ok depending on the above question I think my list will look like this;http://store.yahoo.com/chefknivestogo/edprocufumo.html
I think the full monty has all the things I'm leaning towards.
additional shapton glass stones 220 "out of stock" http://www.chefknivestogo.com/shglst220grf.html
probably the 16k http://store.yahoo.com/chefknivestogo/shglst16kfor.html
atoma 140x http://store.yahoo.com/chefknivestogo/at14dipl.html
atoma for edge pro http://store.yahoo.com/chefknivestogo/atoma1403.html
1 micron diamond spray 2oz http://store.yahoo.com/chefknivestogo/1midisp10cah.html
nano cloth 5pc stropping set with stone holder "out of order" http://www.chefknivestogo.com/nacl5pcstset.html
Maybe over my original budget but I have since worked out that I can spend a little more then first realised
Thank you all for your reply's, How is this list looking?

No. The Atoma is a premium plate with a proprietary method of orientating the diamond particles on the plate in which promotes efficient scrubbing of swarf. Furthermore, they are reference-plate-flat. That is why they cost $100 more.

The "full monty" set comes with a 320 GS. I'd get a 2000 instead of the 220 you linked as the extra stone. I have both the 220 and 320 in my set and you really only need one or the other. The 2000 GS is a great stopping place for many kitchen knives and if you are going higher than 2000 it's a great bridge from 1000 to 4000.
Otherwise it looks like you'll be set!
Melampus is CORRECT, that diamond plate is NOT the same as the Atoma. Imagine going 4 wheelin' in a Yugo instead of a Hummer. The difference is like that.

Parodox is absolutely right about the 220 & 320, you only need one or the other.

All good, I was just going off what you said earlier paradox: "Optional now or later 150 Nubatama or GS220/320 etc. for the move from the 140 Atoma."
never hear of a yugo, looked it up and the first heading I came to said is the yugo really the worst car in history lol
ok looks like I'm good to go, how would I go about sharpening a knife like this with a 50/50 edge grind? http://www.chefknivestogo.com/riarbrkn27.html

I would recommend ceramics. The Spyderco Sharpmaker works well with serrated blades. I used the Sharpmaker about 2 years ago before I got my Edge Pro.After the EP, I only kept it for quick touch-ups, and serrated blades.

slice - That's a great bread knife. If you just use it for bread you may never need to sharpen it. If you do I suggest a round stick style sharpener or one of the sharpmaker sticks. Look around there are plenty of options for sharpening serrated blades. I have a nice little cone shaped one from DMT that does well.

Think I will get a set of these http://www.dmtsharp.com/sharpeners/fold ... -serrated/
Blue 45 microns
Red 25 microns
Green 9 microns
Ok now thats the sharpeners sorted, now to choose these Knives
oh and didn't realise but the 2k was meant to be on that list
