Grinder and Jig. If you don’t want to spend all your time sharpening, get a grinder and jig. When it gets dull, set up the jig (or leave it set) and touch up your tools. Takes only a few seconds…
The SFM of a lathe just makes it impractical to just touch it up with a strop or buffing wheel-there’s just not enough left of the edge..
