Beginner Tig welder,
Went looking for a grinder that would quickly grind a repeatable profile for the electrode, and would not cost an arm or leg. I read most ideas and there were some good ones. Below is what I came up with for myself. I found a tool, at of all places HF that is fairly stout and looks to be up to the job. The tool is sold as a circular saw blade sharpener, 50 beens.
With some modifications and reverse engineering I think this is going to give me what I need. If you like it and want more information although it is pretty straight forward. I will be glad to pass along what I know.
This is the grinder completed

Here is a line scribed in the base to verify the electrode length
