In the meantime, cool wheels on a slow speed grinder looks like a good move. The dang Tormek just has too many issues. Good for axes.
I can almost guarantee that every one of those shops had at least one Harig 612 grinder -- It was one of the first machines every tool shop bought... before it all went to china and those shops closed. There are still plenty of them around though and if you want things "spot on" that machine (with care) will do it closer than the tools you have to measure with.
