fingernail grind

Joe
>I am having trouble achieving a fingernail grind on a spindle gouge. I keep getting a "point" on the end, instead of a nice rounded fingernail. I have tried freehand, and with a fingernail jig. I have followed instructions in books, etc.
Any tips for achieving a nice rounded fingernail profile?
Thanks,
Joe in NH
