2 people found this review helpfulI purchased this plate primarily for lapping stones. For this purpose it has been an excellent impovement of the DMT XC that I was previously using for lapping and repairs. The Atoma doesn't suction to the stones like the DMT does. At 140 grit, it does leave scratches on fine stones but they appear no worse than the DMT XC (220 grit), they don't greatly impact feel, and they are easy to condition out with a nagura or near stone in your progression.The bottom line is to bite the bullet and buy the best straight out of the gate. It will save you money and headache in the long run and the performance difference is undeniable.Thankfully, at this point, I can't comment on how it perfoms repairing damaged edges.
