Hi guys been awhile been biz with new house and stuff. any way i have the same sort of setup based on the wolverine but its self made, i use a good quality pink wheel, and although there will be some where in the wheel this should take some time if you only use it for sharpening your lathe tools, remember you are sharpening them not grinding, one to two passes is all that is needed if you have it setup right, if you use a perm marker to color the grinding edge then all you would do is to make that mark go away, you sharpen not grind and grind away. i go to the wheel 1/2 passes then back to the lathe then i touch up with a small diamond now and then to keep the edge then back to the wheel when needed, you will know when you need to do this over time. i see loads of guys grindin ghte hell out of there tools and there is no need for it unless you like to spend money on more tools. if you have a jig setup then just learn how it is used and keep to it. there are lots of small vids around like on youtube. anyway have fun im hopeing to get some trning done soon, drop by later...Hows things John.
