In the process of making a dedicated area for sharpening pretty close to my bench.

I saw one guy talk about keeping your grinder away from your honing area.

I can’t think of any reason why, can you?

Just wondering if I’m missing something

My thoughts….
As the grinding media wears away, it could leave abrasive media on/in your honing compound.
By the same token, it is good to keep you sharpening &/or metal working area, away from your finishing area.
Don’t want metal bits & grinding/sharpening media contaminating your finish.

Good point about the media. I use the fine white stones and there is quite a bit of powder around.
I’m thinking of installing a heavy duty shelf away from this area for my grinders.
It would get them away plus it would give me more counter space.

I have a finishing room so no problem there.
