    I`d just add...try avoiding those "native cut" colour stones with the rounded bellies that won`t grip the hole due to lack of a defined girdle.
    They really are not suited for the style & will cause serious headache.

    Chris, which stones are these? how do I know which ones to avoid?
    Thank you

    The best way to learn that is wait until you come across a problem & take note.

    Here you go John - these 3no 1.25mm black diamonds went in really smoothly after watching your video
    The most difficult bit was finding the one I dropped... then finding the one I placed on the floor to see what the one I dropped would look like when it was on the floor

    I found them both in the end tho

    Well done looks good , your welcome, just remember You can use the same technique on rubovers to , if the stones are
    large would be advisable to groove the inside edge.
    Just did this one Friday very soft stones.
