Sharpening mini tools?

Ed Kelle
>Looking for the best way to sharpen my mini tools, mostly having trouble with the gouges. As much as I try to go gentle, I seem to be taking off more metal than I'd like, plus I seem to change the profile way to easily. It's hard enough just to see the tip of a 1/8" gouge so touching it to a slightly unbalanced grinder does not help.

Is there a better/more consistent way to sharpen mini tools? Maybe just hone them with a stone? Thanks
