IMO, hand sharpening isn’t for turning tools. Particularly gouges. Any jig that gives you consistent results that you like is a good one. That being said, a turn-key Tormek system is nice and will give excellent results I’m sure. But, the homemade jigs will give excellent results as well. Provided they’re constructed well and used properly.

In short, use whatever works for you, just get those tools sharp ASAP so you can get back to turning!
