    I have been around the block with sharpening, have a Wet grinder which I never seem to use any longer. It takes too much time. Besides honing, I do everything (carving chisels, turning tools, plane irons, knives) on the CBN wheel using the different Wolverine jigs.

    I disagree... I can sharpen a bowl gouge in under 30 seconds with a perfect grind everytime. I use my wet grinder for everything, chisels , all my turning tools, plane blades... Its a matter of preference and I prefer the we grinder. I know the CBN wheels work, but I go from wet to hone to a mirror finish on the same machine.

    To each his own. I use to do the same thing as you for many years. The OP though is looking at mainly turning tools though, most of us don’t hone those.

    For honing, after the CBN wheel I still do the same I use to when I used the wet grinder. Plane irons, carving chisels etc. For me the honing after CBN takes the same time as when I used the wet grinder.

    Perhaps you have a better system than me?

    This is the one I have, but it is real slow. My CBN wheel will remove in 15 seconds the same amount of metal that this grinder will remove in 20 minutes.

    I bought my older Tormek used with a bunch of attachments. They don't wear out and there is not much difference between the older ones and the newer ones. Some good deals if you know anyone near these who could check them out and ship to you:

If anyone has any info on some of these brands and how they perform I would really appreciate the information on them thank you.
    I have one, bought Tormek jigs for it on A.......com it works fine. If you'd like to talk shop about it give me a call. All the best with your hunt!

    Re: Info on sharpening machines!

    Thank you all for the info. I went with the wolverine set up and a CBN wheel. I’m happy with it too it’s better then what I had and more affordable then a lot of other options.
