Question for CBN grinding wheel users?

E Phillip Smith
There's been a good discussion below on advantages of CBN wheels for grinding tool edges. I understand the concept of cool cutting but what I would like to see is how people grinding with CBN wheels present to tool to the grinding wheel since essentially all of the wheels sold are square faced except the wheels sold by Tools for Working Wood.

I've learned to free hand grind with a wheel with slight radius and this method is almost fool proof even with beginners. I've had limited luck with square wheels and with most jigs.

Pictures would be great.
