When you get the shapton, glue (epoxy, contact cement, silicone, whatever your choice) the shapton stone to something flat with a little bit of mass. You'll much appreciate it in use (if you use the plastic box, stiction may cause the stone to lurch off of the base/box and end up on the floor - broken).

It's a stone that can sometimes allow a vacuum to form between it and the blade, and the mass of the moving blade and your moving parts attached to it is enough to cause it to take short trips to places where it shouldn't go.
