It's worth mentioning that, all else being equal, it is cheaper for those outside the US to buy the Atoma 140 from one of the Japan-based retailers like TFJ, BWJ or MMjp.
There's a man after my own heart!!!

I originally got them for cleaning stones and erasing the scratches from the #140 but found that they do a fair job of flattening too. And they last ages. They don't rust and the diamonds don't fall off either. I also have the #400 and the #1500 but I don't use them much, if at all. I would only buy the white #600 again.
