Drywall screens for flattening?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Is there any specific type of drywall screen I should use for flattening stones?  I'm guessing coarse, but thought I'd ask before going to buy them.  Thanks for any help.

If you have to go buy drywall screens just buy a flattener. Dry wall screens are not that cheap and a flattener is not that expensive. CKTG carried the Peacock for years @ around $12. A vastly better option or you can grab a Togiharu from Korin for the same $12 and still cath the 15% off sale until the end of the month.

120 grit. A 3 pack should be under 10 bucks

 

Bought a flattner from Norton once.  Was mightly (deleted)-ing uhm off when I found out that the flattner dished out quite easily and needed truing as well.  I ended up using plain sandpaper taped to a sheet of glass, later I ran into a case of 80 grit sanding belts at a garage sale and cut them up to use.  (and for many other purposes as well) 

 

I finally bit the bullet and bought a 1000 grit DMT diamond stone and use that on all of my waterstones

I still flatten my stones on wet-dry sandpaper of different grits. Put it over the granite countertop, spray some water, go.
