My bad, my post was not clear, yes I meant trying to remove the stone from the base is generally problematic and I have never seen or heard of it working.

Cutting or sanding the base down does seem like a good idea, probably easily remedied with a belt sander.

At first I hated bases, but the more I use them, the more I can come to terms with them, although I have to use them on a silicon mat.

Would it be better if you could remove "most" of the base? Maybe enough that it would fit into a universal holder? The whole thing is to leave the backing on the stone without stressing the rest of it while removing. As long as the backing stays in place then you can remove the rest of the base most likely. It would be a bit of work I imagine, but could be done.

Shaun, yea I've done that - or even grinding down the base after cutting most of it off. It does require some care not to FU the stone.
