I recently bough Hard rock wool felt pad 10x3 from Dave (unfortunatelly I am not able to recive answer from Dave) so I will ask here if somebody know.
While deburring on it there is very fine white powder release so I am intersted if any one know what's word about-I suppose that some kind of paste is applied but not sure which one?
Also is there any need for time to time reaplying that paste?

Thx.

I would say this is lint from the wool, I donlt think they are treated in any way

I think that also, but it sems not to be lint-it's rather like very fine dust (same as released from felt pads when chromium oxide is applied but this one is white).

I agree. The felt pads can be loaded with diamond which is white dust but I'm pretty sure Dave does not pre-load diamond on these.

Maybe it's some of Dave's magical sharpening dust.

:justkidding:

I agree with Tinh and Stefan. Just some dust from the felt.

Maybe just dust from the felt but maybe also Dupont diamond spray (which is white as told in above post) because there are white residues on the fingers when rubbed over the surface.
If it is maybe preloaded with diamond spray can I use it for deburring together with felt block after each stone in progression or just for a final honing stage.

I'm pretty sure it isn't BUT loaded felt strops can be used for either purpose.

It's just the fibers coming off of the pad. Unless if I remember correctly, Dave did mention preloading diamond for some of the newer all you need kits.

I think that was the leather pad that was preloaded.

When new the felt pads will give off some dust but it seems to disappear gradually over time. The felt pads are not treated by me with anything.
