    You use the base also. The replacement surface is just a new set of abrasives to go on your base. You won't have to get a replacement very often unless you flatten your stones very frequently or do repair work with it.

    Same here. Sometimes it's still nice to start over with a flat stone.

    Anyone tried to slap this on an old 8" DMT bench stone? I'd hate that heavy base to go to waste.

    Was it just in length? When I looked at the spec, it appeared the Atoma sheet would be 1mm less wide than the DMT plate but 5 or so mm longer.

    Have you had any issues with the overhang? Did you trim it?

    I just put both next to each other and that looks about right.
