    Rare Brush?

    Oh yes, I can understand it they are very nice brushes that's a fact, and if people are willing to pay it that's their choice 100%. But the downside is what I'm saying is it's going to push the price up beyond the working man's price range, but that we will have to see in the future if the...

    Rare Brush?

    Hmmm Well, look at it this way, if people are willing to pay that amount how much are they willing to pay for a perfect brush. I respect the sellers they need to make a living, but that is going to make the product way too expensive for a perfect brush. If they wish to increase their prices to...

    The 66 you need to mod it as the shoulder catches on the hones that's why you have to use a Dremel without you will never hone it to a true apex and the spine is wonky and way too thick

    Atoma 1200 For Lapping

    I have the Atoma 400, then got a stick on 1200 and placed it on the backside so my Atoma is 400 and 1200. If you are lapping Arkansas stones they will kill the Atoma's, that's why I use Sic grit to do the grunt work on the arks as they are very hard. @SliceOfLife its better to use water
