What other hobbies do you enjoy using this shop?
Making parts for offshore fishing boat "StovePipe" and keeping filet knives sharp for boat and others who share the dock.

Wow, you seem about as serious about fishing as you are about sharpening !

How did you make the cover to protect the drive wheel from splashing water? Interested in a solution.

There are "Drip Trays" being made (or you can print your own if you have a 3D printer).

Edit:  Here's some more links...

I found a kid on Craigslist advertising3D printing. He made it for pretty much material cost.

Excellent! Handle it very carefully- it breaks easily. Ask me how I know... :-\

Another caveat on the 3D printed drip tray on Thingiverse by Paul. Spacing is a bit off on a T7. Note the gap on the left, between the stone and the tray. It barely clears the right side with a leather honing wheel, but will rub if it is a Tormek CW-220 composite honing wheel ( which is 3.6mm wider).

Now someone needs to design one that covers the leather honing wheel, or has an attachment for same, for those of us who run two wheels.   :)

There was a mod in that YouTube video I linked earlier...  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A97KhtUZfFc

I'm having the drip tray 3D printing file modified to include the groove. As soon as this local ME student completes the modification I'll provide to anyone that wants it. Not sure how to post a link for the file but hopefully someone will let me know when I have the modified file.

If it's under "1024KB" you can attach the file to the post as a zip file. if it's bigger than that, you have to host the file somewhere else and then just copy/paste the link in the text box.  (That's why there's links to "thingverse", "printables", etc.).
