Re: humbling experience with skew *PIC*

Great, glad you got it solved! I've heard an MDF wheel was great for that but I've never made one. I do use the leather honing wheel on the Tormek on all tools, especially skews and spindle gounges, usually followed by stropping on leather charged with a bit of polishing compound. After using the skew or gouge a bit I hone with an EZE-Lap diamond hone, extra fine (the blue-handled one) and strop again. This gives me a razor sharp edge again.
