There’s a lot of good ideas and information here, thanks.

I think I will try the shop made Wolverine jig at first. That seems simple enough and I already have the grinder.

I’ve gotten this far by repeatedly honing the tools. They have just gotten beyond what you can help with a honing strop. (It didn’t hurt that I only ocassionaly do turnings.)

Eventually, I will invest in a better system. (Tormek perhaps?)
For now though, I’ll try this solution. It seems so simple up front.
