    Cool - Are they epoxied together, or just butted dry?

    I think they were just butted up dry against each other but I didn't try to pick them up so I'm not totally sure.

    I thought it could have been that the one up against the wall was there to prevent the one he's using for sharpening from slipping up on a slippery tile.

    My thoughts exactly.

    He was using the full length of both stones on his passes.

    That's why I went with epoxy on a hunch.

    I dropped my stone fixer and it broke in two. I epoxied it together and leveled it with diamond plate so it's good to go again.
