79520 JF1616@a... 2000‑06‑08 Oilstone flattening question
Greetings all,

With the recent discussion on flattening stones, what about oilstones.
I use ss and waterstones, but got a couple of oilstones thrown in with a 
recent garage sale purchase (old workmutt, I never had one before) I 
thought oilstones were suppose to remain fairly flat, but at least one 
of these needs some work. It looks like they're in the medium grit range
beneath the gunk. Is there a best method for flattening them?

yes, still here, now on the west coast of Fla.
