From here you can either get 1 micron CBN or Diamond , or the 16k
After that you can either get the 30k or some .5micron CBN or Diamond
That will give you a nice clean progression leading to your .25 diamond spray. Leaving you with a true.25 micron finish , instead of a polished 8k finish. 8k-60k is too big of a jump.
What are you stropping with right now? I like roo and nanocloth ,but some people like balsa.

Only use Deionized water. You want clean water. 2 reasons.
A) you do not want any salt or mineral deposits on your strop.
B) You do not want the electrical charge of the water to cause particle agglomeration.
Ill reiterate. This is very important!
Some people will say that the 500gs is a waste of money. I say that if your chasing a mirror its a good stone to have.
