I have been and am still in the same situation of sharpening lathe tools but have a suggestion. As far as I’m concerned Tormek is the best sharpener. But exspensive. I have tried the grinder lightly, and the stone. I don’t think you have to worry about a stone getting the tool to hot unless you got more energy than I do. What I have done now is use the Shop smith Mark V that I have and placed a sanding disc on it and turn the RPM’s down to slow and lightly turn the tool back an forth on the disc. All you need to do is hold it on an angle and brighten up the grind that is already on there. Then take a piece of sand paper and flatten the burr of the other side. It works for me you might try it
