Default Re: Video: Sharpening with flat template


A quick question on sharpening with your diamond hones. I normally would use a lubricant, either water with a corrosion inhibitor (the stuff sold for use with facetting laps) or oil, with diamond laps, but notice that various photos and videos on the site show no lubes that I can see. Wouldn't that shorten the life of the hones? And isn't it safer to use a lube when grinding the carbalt gravers especially? Just wondering what you recommend. Also, any chance of a source for a half inch high ceramic lap to use with diamond for an actually polished graver? With platinum around stone setting especially, I could use it. Or do you find that polishing a graver like that makes it less precise in cutting, or some such?
