Several years ago I was given a very nice gift from the members of the old forum and now I want to pass along this gift to someone else.

The item is a Shapton Pro 30000x stone :eek:vg:

It's slightly used (2 owners) but with nearly all it's life left still in it. This is a very expensive stone, one that almost no one will ever buy as it costs right about $500 new today.


I have only two rules for this giveaway....

1. You must be a supporting member to be entered.

2. Should you win you must agree that you'll never sell this stone.
My hope is that you'll either love it and use it or pass it along (pay it forward) in some similar fashion to what I'm doing here.


PLEASE> If you get selected and have no desire to use this stone please say so and decline so that we can select another person who wishes to use it. I would hate to see such an expensive stone sit in a drawer never to be used when so many would put it to use.

I'll use a random number generator to select the lucky member on Oct 18th, two weeks time (a fortnight for you Englishmen) from today.

Good luck to you all! :thumbsup:

Dave

If I pay good attention on Saturday, perhaps I'll be worthy of the stone if the roll of the dice goes my way.

oooooOOOOOooo FANCY

That is really amazing. I wouldn't use it, honestly, though I'd love to hoard it. I used to think about that stone all the time...

What a great giveaway. Hey you know how Murray Carter says you just need "Coarse" and "Fine" and that grits don't matter, etc etc? Someone should do this thing right after a Naniwa Omura.

I sunscribe the "pay forward concept.." it makes the world a more better place better place to live in......

I have used the Shapton pro stones in the lower grit for quite some time and with great success. If I should be so lucky I'll give it a good home with a lot of love and care :)

I'm in. Thanks, Dave!

It seems a 30k is the next logical step!

Btw, do we have to officially say we are in, or is just automatic for supporting members? I thought the last time it was like that.

It's an automatic entry if you're a supporting member so no post here is necessary.
