My stones work ok, I wouldn't say there's much in the pores. I cleaned my slipstones once, but haven't ever bothered with the bench stones.

Somewhere I have a broken plane sole I've saved for years to make into a diamond lap. Never got around to milling the sides lower for easier mounting though. Maybe one day when I need to sharpen more often - I'm still too busy to do much proper work (ie woodworking rather than the day job :D )
