Hi All,
So I just purchased the five piece waterstone kit off CFTG and am now looking for an affordable all purpose lapping stone which will work for all three of my stones. Any suggestions would be most appreciated.
Cheers,
Mike

I have used the cheap one for about 2 years. It is showing its age though. I would recommend you get the atoma 140 and cry once, instead of buying several budget ones.

Very short term would be some 220 grit wet/dry sandpaper. It gets super expensive though.

I did the wet/dry sand paper for years and I dreaded each sharpening session because of the clean up mess. I bought the Atoma 140 and with a stone holder and sharpening tray things go pretty smoothly.

+1 on the atoma 140. i have one and can tell you from experience - the DMT plates stick badly to the stones. the atoma 140 doesn't stick at all. very pleasant to use. i wish i had acquired it much earlier.
