I agree with the aluminum oxide wheel. I do a lot of restores on badly neglected planes and they are invaluable when you need to cut back a major flaw. I also like the hollow grind for the first few times on the stone (what ever type you choose). Once the angle is correct, i usually don’t go back to the grinder though.

For a jig, I just bought a cheap eclipse type. I can’t recall the brand, but it was $13 +/-. It Works well. I’ve been doing more and more free hand, especially on the thicker blades.
