At the Sharpening Shack we use slow wet-grinding Tormek machines and hi-quality wet stones to sharpen most wood turning tools. We recommend sharpening your wood turning tools when you notice rough surfaces on your work and chips of wood instead of nice clean shavings. Pricing: Most wood turning tools can be sharpened for $6 unless you have large nicks and then we charge according to the cutting width of the tool.
Sharpening wood turning tools quickly and consistently is a constant problem for a wood turner. For the beginning woodturner and unfortunately for many long time users of a wood turning lathe, sharpening is a necessary evil.
We stand in front of a machine that throws wood at us at about 75 miles an hour and stop it with sharp tools. Sharp tools make for great shavings creating better surfaces on your work, less sanding, and more fun. I could do the same for the bowl gouges or Oland tools but prefer to have one for each size shaft as I use the Oland tools a lot and am too lazy to want to keep turning the eye bolt in and out. Turning wood with a dull tool is hard work and leaves a lot of work that requires lots and lots of sanding. Also the wood we work with is often straight from a log with bark still on it and sometimes sand and rocks from when it was felled.
I found it easier to make separate holders for different tools than to make an adjustable holder.
