I make splash guards out commercial rubber baseboards. Super cheap and glue Velcro strips to help keep it snug.

The 60 grit flattens without scratches and will remove coatings nicely. One more step (120) and it is usually good to go but you could go to 220. Problem is that they are (at the beginning) 3” tall and that makes them sling slurry everywhere.

>> If it is honed and you intend on an initial coarse grind anyway (maybe some lippage too?), I would recommend a metal-bond diamond to start with as they should cut much faster and also last much longer. Depending on the thickness of the coating, maybe a 50g or 70g might work. Then go to the desired level of hone with resins and color enhance(if desired).

Does anyone know of a good hard bound diamond for this? I usually use Frankfurt stones but this is indoors and they are a mess to work with. Thanks.
