Tormek jigs on a Bench Grinder

I have a Tormek, and I found that re-shaping a HSS gouge is a PITA. Tormek recently announced a package (BGM-100) that lets you use your Tormek jigs on a bench grinder. It's just an additional jig bar and holder.
Here's the tip - if you buy one before January 15, you can get a free additional horizontal base, so you can use the jig bar on both wheels.
It just arrived, but it looks like I can easily have both my Wolverine and the Tormek on the same grinder.

I've been using a rig on my dry grinder to allow the use of the Tormek jigs on the dry grinder for over a year now. Last year at the AAW symposium I picked up a BGM 100 and was able to then set it up to use the jigs on both of my grinding wheels. There is very little grinding needed when one moves to the Tormek after shaping on the dry grinder. Inicdentally, I have diamond wheels on my dry grinder from Andre Martel in Canada. The 360 grit comes pretty close to producing the sharpness one can obtain on the Tormek.
