Not getting sharpness I would like!

Royce Meritt
>I have the Delta model GR250 variable speed grinder and the Wolverine grinding jig and Vari-Grind attachment. This set up has improved my sharpening considerably. However, I still do not seem to be getting the quality of sharpness to my lathe tools as I would like.

First of all, what do any of you recommend as far as grinding wheels are concerned? Secondly, what type of stone (or other implement) for honing? And thirdly, any particular tips to help me get the most out this set up? Thanks.
