I use a HF wet/dry grinder that goes on sale for $39. I use it for most of my starting procedures and then finish up with wet-or-dry (silicone carbide) paper wet on glass. I don’t go over 1200. For straight bevel type tools getting the edge straight across the front of the tool makes a big difference. Experimenting with angles can make certain tools work better.

For odd shaped chisels, and turning tools, I use the wet grinder, and diamond hand files.
