There are many people using the Tormek wet grinder. It is very expensive and does put an good edge on the tools. However it is easy to wear the wheel which is quite expensive to replace. You also have to wait for it to soak up the water.
Most of the pro turners I know use a standard grinder. The wheels are inexpensive to replace and you can turn it on and sharpen in 30 seconds and be back to turning.
