I had one of those things – it got trashed and was replaced by a Wolverine.

I also had the Nova and went to the Wolverine.

On the stones get the white ones at grits 60 and 100. 60 for grinding the gouge to shape then the 100 to keep them sharp.

Sorry, no help here. I have a Tormek setup for lathe tools, knives, etc. and a Brian Burns honing setup for chisels and plane blades.

-- Of all the things I make in my shop, sawdust and wood chips are the most common.

Have your say...
