By far the most popular method for spindle or bowl gouges is the Oneway wolverine with Varigrind jig and an 8” slow speed 1750 rpm bench grinder. Scrapers and skews are ground using a tilting platform. Robo Hippy has a platform worth looking at, as well as tool rests. There are many utube videos on sharpening, Lyle Jamieson is one, others will have other names. Some advocate learning to sharpen gouges without a jig, waste of time IMO – if done every day one gets proficient, but hobbyists dont turn every day.

What lathe do you have and what things do you want to make – size of lathe and projects makes a difference for tools.
