I use the q-tip trick to keep them cool. I wet a q-tip and place the end of it just below the tip of the gouge. I hold it there with my thumb, then grind away. It keeps the tool nice and cool. I cannot believe what a difference sharp tools make while turning. This is also one of the easiest and most effective jigs I have made. Now, to figure out how to sharpen skews, parting tools, and the round nose scraper.
