    Thanks Andrew for pointing that out, I was also wanting to pick one up at Lee Valley so I'm very interested/
    The DMT is available online for quite a bit less but picking one up to my mind just makes sense to me as Lee Valley is close.
    I did read somewhere on here that the DMT's had warping issues

    If my memory serves me correct I saved close to $50 by buying off amazon even with shipping costs. I'd look into it.....

    I've also read this. Guys buying Dmt's and returning them 2 or 3 times before they actually get one that's flat. I didn't want to deal with that so I went right to the Atoma. I'm so glad I got it, the Atoma 1200. Comparing it to my sandpaper that I had been using to lap my stones, is like day and night. Norton 400 grit wet/dry is what I had been using to lap all my stones before the Atoma. I was lucky if I could get 3 stones lapped with one sheet. A harder stone like a J-nat or a black Ark cant be touched by any grit sand paper unless you want to get down into double digits. the Atoma 1200 worked well on my J-nat.

    Not saying the Dmt is a bad lapping plate, as I have no experience with one. Just figured the extra money on the Atoma seemed to be justified by other guys experiences. Maybe at some point I might pick up a DMT 325 just to try one. The Info here from the experienced guys has been great!!!!

    I just re-read this thread and I think this is a great discussion and very informative. I have ordered an ATOMA 400. Maybe a 1200 in the future. Thanks for all the info.....
