I couldn’t upload my pictures in the comment section so I’m trying here to post them.
Here are a few photos of my set up for carving ad turning tools. I don’t use the turning set up often but for carving this is easy and will produce a very sharp edge starting at 240 if necessary all the way up to 1500.
I have 3 wheels with 240-400-600-800-1000-1500

That is very clever!
I love my WorkSharp. I have been wanting to build the Stumpy Nubs table for it.
Thanks for sharing!

I just made three MDF wheels for my WS 3000. I cut disks from self adhesive vinyl magnetic material (available on line) and then bought metal diamond coated disks on line. These disks were shipped from China, literally. Magnetic vinyl and diamond disks were about $40 total. Grits I purchased were 240, 500, 800, 1500, 3000, and I used 2000 wet/dry for the six side.

I did need to buy slightly longer center knob. I trued MDF disks on lathe… that I have never done. I wanted a way to sharpen lathe tools, and misc knives. It all worked well. It was a fun project.

Now I need to try your tool holder to work the tool bevels uniformly. Thanks for the idea.
