The DMT Dia-Flat™ Lapping Plate will flatten most sharpening stones, waterstones, oilstones or Arkansas stones. It is a combination of supreme flatness and DMT’s proprietary Diamond Hardcoat Technology™. It is a significant leap forward in durability and it will outlast any other diamond coating on the market. This is critical because the flattening process puts a tremendous amount of wear on stones compared with sharpening. DMT individually inspect EVERY Lapping Plate to make sure it meets strict specifications. Each plate includes a certificate for flatness, guaranteed to be less than ±0.0127mm across its surface. Over 30 carats of diamond grit give you a consistent, aggressive, 120-micron surface. The grit cuts fast and produces excellent results. The weight and extra large surface area keep it on your stone and make it easy to use. Size 254 x 102 x 10mm.

Should really be called Waterstone lapping plateDone a bit of research before buying this plate and read the stories of people ruining them by flattening oilstones made from aluminum oxide or carborundum so ok I thought I'll use it just for waterstones and flattening the odd plane sole anyway I can now confirm that halfway through flattening my record 4 1/2 plane using light pressure the wear is already evident on this 'lapping' plate with smooth(not wore in) patches so I shall be finishing the flattening process on glass with sandpaper now.
