lumberjoe—WoodCraft has a 1725rpm grinder that sells for about $125 … I have one and am perfectly happy with it.

With HSS tools, you can use a regualr (3450rpm) grinder, but it is easy to grind off a lot more steel than necessary. Once you get the grind/bevel you want, routine sharpening should only take tiny amounts of steel off the tool.
