    That does help thanks! Where can I find a good slurry stone? I have been in Ace HW, Lowe's, Home Depot, and other supply stores and no one seems to know what the heck I'm talking about. It's frustrating, there's a bit of a language barrier where I'm at and it just makes me think, do they really know what I'm asking for??? Or are they just saying they don't have it because they have no clue what it is?

    You don't really need a slurry stone. Learn to use the Nortons on their own first, that's the foundation you should have before you worry about other things like slurry.

    Well can I use my 220 or even my lapping stone to clean off my 4k and 8k like Glen uses his DMT?

    Use the lapping plate for lapping and deswarfing (cleaning). The only reason that people use the DMT instead is because it's gauranteed flat, and it stays flat.

    You can't use your lapping plate for slurry creation, because it will likely release some large grit into the slurry, which would be very bad. As mentioned though, you don't really need slurry. FWIW I honed eight razors on Nortons yesterday, and I didn't use slurry at all; I rarely do on synthetic hones.

    I found that if you need other stones and help with materials, I went to Woodcraft, and bought some my stones there. Woodworking shops often use the same items for sharpening the lathe tools.

    Thx!
    Yes.

    If you live in Europe, the best place to buy them is... still the US.
    With the low dollar, and the fact that prices always seem to be pounds for dollars, it is much cheaper to buy in the US and pay the 15$ shipping fee. At least that was what I did for my stones.

    I live in Belgium. Back when I bought my 8x3 coticule, it was cheaper for me to buy one from Howard (shipping included) than to just buy one here.
    In fact, the cost of the coticule + a DMTD8C + shipping was still cheaper than the retail value of the coticule alone in a local store.
