I have been using sandpaper on glass for sharpening edge tools for some time. Recently I bought a couple of ceramic waterstones from TFJ. I now need a way to flatten the waterstones. Right now I don’t have budget to buy a diamond plate for this. I was wondering whether I can use the two sided (240/400) silicone carbide stones I have lying around for this? If yes, would a 6” x 2” stone be large enough to flatten a 8”x3” waterstone or must I have larger ones?

I would appreciate any thoughts on this very much.
