I would and did what was described at this link
I made a 15 F5 and here is a link to a picture of some of the tools I used during the process.
For hogging I used the metal tools then for fine grinding I switched to the Hydrostone.
Yes, those are US nickels glued to the Hydrostone. I made that tool by casting it from an already ground 16 F5. I was lucky to find a friend who had an unpolished one to use as the mold.
For final polishing I used a full sized Hydrostone tool. For figuring I used an 8 inch sized tool.
