Re: Turning tool sharpening

>Good advice from the others not to get the Delta shapening center - it is really junk - mine is relegated to sharpening my lawnmower blade (which I just did today actually on it), and nothing else. Woodcraft sells a decent quality Taiwanese 1750 rpm slow speed grinder that actually comes with some have decent wheels. Invest in the Wolverine system like others have recommended (I strongly recommend the diamond point dressing jig - it makes a huge difference on the cutting ability of the wheels!). Also, get the vari-grind and skew jigs as part of your kit. I've been very happy with the wolverine jig and my woodcraft grinder.
