I’m embarrassed to say I bought into the Tormek brainwashing regime and ended up with a Jet wet sharpening system, since it was almost half the price of the Tormek. Still, I spent over $400 on all that stuff. After using it for awhile, I returned to the Scary Sharp /Veritas honing guide for chisels and plane irons, and am trying to decide what to do with the Jet. For curved lathe tools and carving tools (gouges), though, the Wolverine system with a regular grinder is the way to go. That Worksharp and Lee Valley’s power sharpener look good, too.
Incidentally, Don, the Woodcraft in Reno is history. The former owner opened another store in Reno, but must have had a falling out with Woodcraft.
