Im looking for some sharpening advice. After picking up a lathe I now need to look into a system in which to sharpen my tools. Right now I just sharpen my chisels with a stone. I am looking at the Rikon slow speed bench grinder and have also been looking into a sharpening wheel (turn-table style, not wet) I however was wondering what people on this site like to use between the two, and would recommend.
Also I was wondering about sharpening hand plane blades. So I know I can use either of these two systems I’ve mentioned with chisels and turning tools, but does anyone (in their right mind) sharpen plane blades on either of these types of machines, or are plane blades strictly sharpened with wet stones, and other non-machine methods? I do not use hand planes now but would like to in the future, and I’ve only seen the blades worked on wet stones. Basically I’m just curious if one of these two machines can work all three types of tools.
Also any sharpening tool recommendations would be appreciated.
