Some use 'slip stones' (I have a set from Henry Taylor that I bought when I first started turning). They are about the same as the stones crank49 described above.

In truth, I'm not sure it is necessary. I have seen pros and cons on this … some say removing the wire/burr improves the cut, others say leave it because it will come off on it's own when you are cutting.

I go right from grinder to turning burr gone in matter of seconds. I just touch up the tools and back to it! Do have some cheap diamond card files that use from time to time to touch up my tools and may use a piece of sandpaper between gouge flutes now and then.

Was looking at getting one of these stones to hone my tools, but never seem to get around to it.

At one time did use a wet stone and slips, homemade honing wheel and leather wheel on my lathe. Think did nothing more than insult my tools with wet & slip stones, and dull my tools with that homemade mess & compounds. Have not used that stuff in years,
