A couple of years ago I bought my lathe. From time to time I use him as a lathe (mostly he is used as a disksander) and in particular for cylinders. For making the cylinders I use TC tools with changeable knives. I also have a couple of HSS turning tools. Till now I could not sharpen them as I would like. I like the Robert Sorby ProEdge, but with a price of more than Euro 600 too expensive for me.
So last week I decided to give it a try to build my own and for me it was successful. Started with a cheap far east grinder that was bought a time ago.
Below some pictures which I hope make more clear than my text. When you want to see how a ProEdge works there is a lot of documentation on the internet for example this video
