    I use Goodson stones, they make quite an assortment, you can call and speak to the abrasive guy and he can guide you in the right direction.

    Some random thoughts on floaters:
    I cut my floaters wet and have a couple of different stones depending on the finish I desire for that particular application. Most people cut them dry and some use a diamond stone. There are also people out there that provide a grinding service if you’d like to go that route. The key is cutting them in a manor that gives you a flat surface when your done. If you jig it in your machine in a way that warps the floater a tad bit, it will measure flat when your done and still on the machine , but when you remove it and it relaxes it won’t be “true” any longer. As long as you can repeat what your doing over and over again, that’s one more constant in a sea full of variables.

    The Goodson diamond (CBN) wheels work nice wet or dry.
