Hi. Can the DMT XXC be used dry for straightening stones or should it always be used with water? Thanks.

Dry on dry or wet on wet works best for me.

So you can use dry waterstone on a dry DMT or a wet waterstone on a wet DMT? Using for edge pro stones.

I'd reckon any combo would work technically. What I find is that a dry DMT plate and a wet stone = stiction (apparently not a real word, but I don't care). Same happens vise versa. Either lots of water....or no water.

I use them in my kitchen sink. Turn on the water and let it run over the DMT and stone as needed. Sometimes I'll place my stone holder in the bottom of the sink and set the DMT into it. Then rub the stone against it in differing directions. Sometimes, more often with EP mounted stones I'll hold the DMT in my left hade, and stone in the right.

Actually just a contraction of static friction that has been around a long time and is actually descriptive rather than just what the kewl kidz say. Since static friction is almost always greater than dynamic friction, the items stick before they move. I think I first heard it applied to shock absorbers.

I believe the cause of this particular phenomena is more of a hydraulic bonding. Now I'm curious.

I hate to be pedantic, because most linguists hate pedantics, but "stiction" would be a portmanteau rather than a contraction. ~* the more you know ~*

I learned something today! Hmm... Now how can I work 'portmanteau' into casual conversation at work tomorrow?
