I have a Honing Guide, but as nice at the Veritas. As far as not going TOO coarse with grit… That is what I was wondering, PLUS what grit is TOO fine? 320? 600?

Here is what the converted sander should look like. It calls for the addition of a buffing wheel, though I did wonder if putting leather on the existing wheel would be doable as an alternative.
