I bought dad a Jet slow speed wet sharpener and some Tormek jigs for it. I only have one gouge and was enamored by the Tormek gouge jig. We both have the WorkSharp and I thought of a way to do steps that required a lot of metal removal that work for me (without a slow speed machine) and for him prior to using the slow speed machine.
Take a piece of hardwood scrap and make an opening about the shape of your tool(s). Drill a perpendicular hole and tap it. Thread in a knobbed stud (or is it studded knob?).

Slip the gouge in and find the angle similar to the method used on the Tormek/Jet or what have you. Lock it down with the knob. Keeping the face of the jig against the bar, use nice smooth sweeping curves.

Work your way through 2 or 3 grits and you end up here.
For me this is done as I use this method on my one carving gouge at about 30* IIRC. For some of you spinners (45* - 55*), its off to the slow speed sharpener to really shine her up.
