No on using a buffing wheel to resharpening! You do not say what kind of steel tools made of, but would recommend touching up tool edge with a diamond card.

Lot depends upon wood and type of turning and results you are getting as to degree of resharpening needed. Also amount of damage you are doing to the wood.

Once you get in the habit of touching up a tool edge on a turning tool doesn’t take long. Whether with diamond card or bench sander or grinder.
