    Default Is that a hone????

    I have been trying to fix, restore, and frame a stained glass panel that my father made. While visiting a local stained glass shop I caught something out of the corner of my eye! That has to be a hone I said to myself!

    Sure enough it was. A scythe hone. They are used for rounding off the edges of the glass.

    I had to laugh at myself because in the midst of all this flashy stuff, the hones on a lower shelf out of the way stuck out like a sore thumb to me!

    Do any of you have this same symptom of HAD?

    I already have a few so I didn't buy one!

    Man, I rub bits of busted hones on lots of things. Put it in a chuck and spin it.
    Apply hone!

    I use those dried-out barber's hones to dress my grinder's stone!

    My quirk is finding them as nature presents them and taking them home, shaping and lapping them to see how well they work. It is quite addictive.
