Over the years some lathes were designed to utilize accessories on the left hand side of the lathe headstock, if you have a VFD controlled lathe you could easily mount a wheel on that side or use an arbor/mandrel shaft between centers and have a variable speed CBN wheel that you could use to sharpen tools with if you plan ahead each day. This is not practical for serious wood turners as they will sharpen tools often to attain clean cuts throughout the day. For the beginning hobbyist this could be an option until they get tooled up.
