In principal I can go from 15 micron loose to 1 micron and done, but there is carry over and the 1 micron plate gets contaminated. It takes just a tiny bit of metal removal to refine 15 micron loose to diamond to useable. Experimenting with diamond paste is cheap, 10-15 a size. Experimenting with stones for final polish is not cheap, so I have no done it.
