Ive been given a Sheppach Tiger whetstone, lovely machine but how do i use the leather wheel to hone?

A tub of paste was supplied but no instruction book, (demo model) do i use the leather wheel dry, wet, with the paste or what? I could just try it but the leather wheel seems a bit fragile and i dont want to mess it up and have to buy another one for the sake of asking.

OOps, use it dry - just like a stromping strap for a razor

Removable Leather Honing wheel. After Sharpening, it removes the burr to give you a smooth edge. You might be able to get a manual if you contact the company and ask nicely. Check through Google search
