Chuck I use both a fast speed grinder and slow speed. Most times when turning I use the fast speed to sharpen. When I am done I usually use the slow speed to put a fine edge on the tools. I use a diamond hone on my skew and can shave with it when done. You can find the white and blue stones at Craft Supply USA and Packard Woodworks.
