I purchased the Tormek BGM-100 and brought in my faithful (though none too bright) assistant to aid in the install. This rig allows you to go from shaping operations on the bench grinder to honing operations on your wet sharpener while maintaining the tool geometry.
First my trusty sidekick Igor selects a drill bit or two.
After returning to the shop following a brief trip to the bathroom for band-aids and peroxide we got back to work. Igor insisted on showing off his Canadian Woodworker shirt so I appeased him (these fools are easier to work with when they are fed and happy . . . and it takes so little . . . to make them happy that is; they eat like a horse.)
After I finally got Igor out of the way so I could get some work done, the holes were drilled, the tee-nuts were counter bored and I allowed Igor to hold the board so I could get a picture.

The BGM-100 sometimes needs to mounted higher than the grinder platform depending on your grinder size or format. I quickly and efficiently withdrew a piece of cherry to use for this purpose from my index of scrap wood . . . this translates to "I dug through the scrap pile in the shed till I found something to use".
Igor once again rudely pushed me out of the way and made a mess of the cherry block by trying to use a hand plane on it . . . Silly Igor, you can't use one of these complicated un-tailed tools.
Despite my challenges in working with the mentally deficient, I managed to get things assembled. The TTS-100 is used with the BGM-100 to set the Universal Support (that's German for "rod") to the same relationship with the wheels on each grinding/sharpening tool.

Now using the Tormek Multijig SVD-185 you can shape the tool quickly. Then move directly to the wet system and sharpen and hone the profile without having to readjust anything.
