I just got a lathe for christmas. The tools I have are harbor freight (I know, I know). I have rigged up a sharpening set up where my old belt sander sits vertical and I sharpen my tools with that. Going slow, and cooling the tool with water. It sharpens pretty good, and since the tools are cheap I don’t worry so much about the setup. I was looking at variable speed grinders and the price, plus the wheels is pretty substantial at this point.
Please tell me if you think this idea is dumb or not. Won’t get mad at the answer.
