But you can glue the replacement sheet on the backside of your existing one. The bottom side of that aluminium plate is precision ground too, you will have a double sided diamond hone basically.

I'm buying mine from Stu when I get them. Still probably cheaper even w/ EMS shipping & there's a lot to be said for buying from someone who actually uses what he sells.

Well, my Atoma 1200 was just delivered. I went with the 1200 instead of 400 as I already have a DMT325, so I figured it would be a little redundant to have 2 diamond plates with similar grits. I got the 1200 for lapping my finishing stones, and I will say that it does an EXCELLENT job. No stiction, much lighter than a DMT, and it leaves a nice shiny finish on my stones. Definitely worth the $$ IMO...
I think what I'm going to do is order the 400 replacement pad anyway, then I can do what Jeness said & glue it on the back of the 1200; then I'll have a double-sided plate!-JP-

And they last pretty well also - my first 1200 lasted around 5-6 years I think, with pretty much daily cleaning/slurry-raising use and perhaps weekly lapping on 4K and over stones. I think you made a good call getting the 1200 - I have the 400 also and it almost never gets used.

I finally bought an Atoma 1200 today from Leevalley. Ive been buying to many razors and put this on the back burner. What a mistake. Of course, when I got home, I had to lap my Nor 4/8 and my Nani 12k and it worked soo well. This is going to make things so much easier. It also worked very well on my newly acquired J-nat as well, to raise a nice slurry. I think the 400 Atoma might also be purchased soon."A fine beer may be judged with only one sip, but it's better to be thoroughly sure." -Bohemian Proverb

What is the reasoning for an atoma 1200 not working on a bevel setting hone? I'll need a lapping plate at some point and would love to escape with just buying one if at all possible. The comments about getting a replacement 400 and putting it on the other side of the plate is nothing short of brilliant, thoughJimmyHAD:My wife told me if I bought another razor she would leave me ........ and I miss her sometimes......
