Smaller, More Economical Dia-Flat 95 Lapping Plate Will Flatten Your Valuable Water Stones

A Sharpening Supplies Exclusive

Sharpening Supplies worked directly with DMT to bring you this exclusive offer. The new 8" Dia-Flat 95 diamond lapping plate provides the same DMT quality as the original Dia-Flat 95, but in a smaller, more economical size. At 8" long and 3" wide it is large enough to flatten your water stones effectively, but small enough to be easier on the budget.

Since its introduction, the Dia-Flat 95 has been our most popular lapping plate for users of water stones. This new 8" x 3" size has all the great features of the original 10" x 4" Dia-Flat 95, but smaller. The 95 micron (160 mesh) diamond grit offers fast leveling and still leaves a smooth surface on your finest water stones. Its flatness is guaranteed to be within .0005 inches so you know your stones will be truly flat. It has the same DMT Hardcoat Technology as the original Dia-Flat 95 ensuring that it will hold up well to the tremendous amount of wear that comes with leveling water stones.

If you sharpen with water stones, you know that they wear unevenly and require regular flattening. Keeping your water stones flat is essential for them to perform effectively, especially when you're sharpening woodworking tools. We have found the DMT Dia-Flat line to be the fastest, most efficient tool for flattening water stones, and we are proud to offer you the Dia-Flat 95 in this exclusive new 8" x 3" size.

Certified Flat

To properly flatten all of your water stones, your lapping plate must be very flat. All of the DMT Dia-Flat stones are carefully machined to be flat within .0005 inches. DMT takes this one step further and tests EVERY flattening stone to make sure it meets their strict specifications. If it doesn't pass the test, it does not go out. You will receive a Certificate of Flatness stating that your 8" Dia-Flat 95 lapping plate has met these rigorous standards. The head of production at DMT handles this process and personally signs off on each unit.

Hardcoat Technology

The 8" Dia-Flat 95 Lapping Plate uses a new DMT proprietary process they call their Hardcoat Technology. DMT has been known for many years for producing long wearing diamond coated products but this is a significant step up in durability, even compared with the other stones they manufacture. This is critical to the long term effectiveness of their flattening stone because the flattening process puts a tremendous amount of wear on stones compared with sharpening.
