ELMERíS CORNER

Found in Vol. 33/ No. 194 of Woodsmith: Cleaning Diamond Stones

 

Diamond sharpening stones are expensive, so when it is time to clean the buildup from a stone, something is needed that will not damage it, but still work effectively. A fingernail brush is just the thing needed for this task. These brushes are inexpensive, readily available, and do a great of restoring the stones to like- new condition.

 

Respectfully submitted,
