I got one of these recently here (Canada) although I haven't used it yet. Price didn't seem too bad to me as things go and Lee Valley sells pretty decent stuff.

First answer from Brian is good advice especially not going too fine on the grit. Just stick one on one end of your existing grinder. If the work is that fine you need to hone the tool there are plenty of diamond slips for small money. I use a single diamond on a stick to dress my wheels and don't find it particularly hard to get them flat. If it's a problem make a collar with a grub screw to fit the stick and use it against the back of the rest, rolling it across the wheel.
There is loads of flashy stuff you can get but you can get plenty good enough results with the basics.
