I have had some experience with these terms before, and translated them as follows.

Honing-head screw -- tornillo angular para esmerilar
honing stones -- piedras para esmerilar
Method of setting hones -- método para fijar (or para la fijación) de piedras para esmerilar
honing oil -- aceite para esmerilar or aceite para el esmerilado

Hope this helps!

Good luck

"hone": afilar, afinar

For example, "honing stone" means in Spanish piedra de afilar, piedra de esmeril.

Honing can be translated as "rectificar una superficie" or "esmerilar" (by means of an abrasive stone, "piedra de esmeril".)

A reference is Louis A. Robb's Engineers' Dictionary

tornillo de fijación de la piedra de ....

Todos los ejemplos son utilizables. Pero, honing-head screw se refiere al tornillo que se usa para afianzar la piedra de esmerilar al eje del motor. Normalmente la piedra se fija con una tuerca,es decir, el eje del motor está roscado; pero en algunos casos, se utiliza un tornillo que es alojado en un orificio roscado del eje del motor de la "esmeriladora". El término apropiado será determinado por la información disponible acerca del producto en cuestión. ¡Saludos!
