I had one of Captain Eddie’s rigs … worked great. The guys at the shop gave me a Wolverine system as a retirement gift, so I sold Eddie’s rig to another turner. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend either.

Full disclosure: I sharpen skews, parting tools, and the bedan on a belt sander … I built a rig using a HF belt sander: http://lumberjocks.com/topics/45541

Thanks everyone so far. Here is another question where do you buy your jigs from?

I use a hand made Jamison 2,4,7 gouge sharping jig and an adjustable table for skews, scrapers and parting tools and bedans. I use a 100 grit wheel to sharpen with.

I’ve been using the Nova Sharpening Center for the past couple months & I like it. It has some room for improvement, but all in all it’s a good setup. I really like the ‘sled’ for skews. My least favorite part is the angle adjustment of the platform. Not bad, but it could be better.
