    Using a 140 for stone flattening, and like it better than the DMT I had been using.

    How much life do you get out of one of those pads vs a DMT?

    I have had m ine for a year , 1.2k and it works great.
    I use it to lap anything above 1k including 10k SS with no problems.

    I've only had the Atoma a few weeks, so its life is still an unknown. So far, I haven't seen any indications of wear.

    Nice. I am really attracted to the idea that they don't stick to stones when lapping. Is this so?

    The stone has to be a real mud monster for the Atomas to stick. They're pretty nice for stone flattening.

    I've had mine for a few months, using it a couple times a week, probably. Most of the wear would be due to flattening a Beston 500. It clearly does not cut like it used to but it cuts very well. It does not stick much at all.
