I'm in the market for one of those guided sharpening systems and I want to get the most for my (limited) money. The human animal is a beautiful and terrible creature, capable of limitless compassion and unfathomable cruelty. A keen mind and a keen edge compliment one another!  Messers Uber Allus! I recommend the DMT diamond sharpeners over everything else because they have a durable product that has held up for me. I basically consider all ready-made sharpening systems to be gimmicks for people who don't really know or care much about what they're doing. I watched the KME video and it seemed to me the clamp was wobbling up and down a little bit while he stroked the stone over the blade which could give a wavy edge. The Sterling Gun Drills manual regrind fixture provides a fast and easy method of resharpening gun drills and half round drills with the popular facet style grind. Part # DM-42-A, Large Sharpening Head, is offered as an option* for a (modified) DM-41 Manual Regrind Fixture. Adjustable Jig suitable for most 150mm and 200mm bench grinders supplied with a tool clamp that takes blades up to 65 mm wide. This sharpening Jig includes everything you need to grind perfect edges on your lathe chisels. The NOVA Sharpening Centre combines the slideway grinding jig and the powerful finger grind jig into one versatile sharpening tool.It utilizes a sturdy platform and a unique sliding base to achieve the ultimate in sharpening.

No matter which grinding machine you use the most difficult part in sharpening woodturning tools is to exactly replicate the shape and the edge angle.
I don't think they're very effective or efficient, and I have seen a lot of guys use them for literally hours to create smooth "razor" edges so thin that they fold over as soon as the knife is used. When sharpening free-hand most turners including some of the most experienced have their difficulties. Our instructors in Coronado highly discouraged this and said to just use a hone stone and get a good working edge. With the drill grinding table removed, a protractor table is revealed, allowing the resharpening of carbide inserts and lathe tools. This leads to facets on the bevel which in turn leads to chatter and a poor surface finish. Once set, this Profiler ensures an even pressure is applied and hence a clean, facet-less bevel is produced.
The amount that the blade extends from the Profiler is critical as this determines the shape of the bevel and its angle.
I can have just about any knife sharp enough to slice paper within several minutes using a diamond rod, and I can get an excellent working edge using old-fashioned sharpening stones.
Granted it works great, and will put a hair popping edge on an edge that needs to be touched up quickly. By going back to the same length of extension the same profile is achieved automatically thereby eliminating the burning away of expensive high speed steel.

I'm guessing I've been able to do this since around the time I was in 8th grade, so this isn't some incredible feat that takes years to learn and master; it's just a matter of thinking about what you're doing and doing it right. Thus the Fingernail Profiler not only gives a consistent shape but saves on the need for replacement tools.The Universal Sharpening System allows the woodworker to sharpen a host of regular shaped tools - like parting tools, scrapers, tips, plane irons, bench chisels.
It construction means that its is adjustable for height so it may be used in conjunction with 6" or 8" bench grinders with equal ease. Even the diamond triangle rods for it are only about 400 grit, which isn't coarse enough for most edge repair.
This robust, all-steel design is an ideal sharpening aid.The Deluxe Universal Sharpening System is a combination of the Fingernail Profiler and Universal Sharpening System and is a tremendous accessory in every workshop.
Its versatility and ease of use have meant that thousands of these systems have been sold to woodworkers who have found sharpening to be one of their main problem areas.
There are several companies that make these besides DMT, and they can be found in round or oval versions.
