    Thanks you, from the land of Lost Wages.
    My 3" stone got bumped off my workbench last week and broke. 1 1/2 inches isn't quite long enough to have a nice stroke. so I purchased this:


    I really like the longer stone. Three strokes each side and done.
    Now... back to the New Readi-Board that I have not tried yet.

I look forward to seeing what Adams comes up with for the new white paper.
    Good to know. And I hope it solves the problem. In the meantime, I just bought some foamboard here in the U.S. at Office Depot. Same U.S. made stuff as found in Mexico.

    I have never seen actual DTFB, but the Office Depot stuff seems fine, albeit more costly.
