Holy mackerel. When I get up to the finer discs (1200, etc..) I run
into 2 problems.
Hydroplaning - If I use a lot of water the stone hydroplanes.
At first I couldn't figure out why the disc wasn't sanding off
the silver coloring I covered the bottom of the stone with using a Sharpie.
It has to be flat. I just sanded off the color at 800 grit. Then I realized
the stone was actually floating on the water. Wasn't hardly touching
Suction - So of course I press harder and then the stone sticks to
the discs like you know what to a blanket. Sometimes the suction is
so intense I have to stop the flat lap and sort of pry it off.
Why haven't I read about this here?
I guess I missed something or .....
So many times I have read use lots and lots of water. But I have to
turn it down.
Anyone else experience this?
Oh, and at the higher grits the stones get as slippery as an eel to boot.
