What great idea! I built a skate sharpener years ago and still have the main body laying around. It's almost exactly the same design you have come up with and now the light bulb has come on! Thanks for the inspiration. A tool post grinder is a lot more useful now that I live in Arizona don't skate any more. That's the great thing about this site; there's always fresh ideas for getting the job done. I assume that you want the spindle centerline to match the lathe and I assume you want the wheel to turn the opposite of the lathe spindle. If not, (or if you have any other suggestions) please, let me know. Again, thanks.
