I agree with you that it makes tools short up to a point. Get your tool sharpened correctly once and continue sharpening like that and then grinding at 3400 rpm's takes off no more metal than any other speed but the difference in how sharp the tool is will change your mind on what speed to use. Try sharpening a tool where you need to take a little metal off at a slower speed, then use 3400 and see the difference.
You can bet Oneway makes turning tools, good ones . Did you ever try using their little Termite? It is an excellent performing tool. Leaves the surface ready to finish. Terrific on hollowing end grain. I like sharpening tools, any tools as much as I like turning wood. Mitch
