Solar Water Heater from scratch
I'll try to explain at my best.you can think of a stone as a granola bar with very fine "seeds" in it. This means that there are micro-valleys and micro-mountains in the stone surface (the micro-mountains are those that make the micro-scratch on the blade you are sharpening).when the micro-mountain scratches the knife edge it removes some metal. Where does this metal go? That's the problematic part.If you don't lubricate the stone the removed metal will clog into the micro-valleys up to the micro mountain top... so that the micro mountain can't scratch the metal anymore and the stone gets useless.This can be seen in missused stones where light allows you to see rusty/metallic parts IN the stone.In short: lubicant helps you get the removed metal away from the stone.
