Wood Turning tools

RATE THIS:

I've been a high end carpenter for the last 5 or 6 years.I've done some cool finish trim in multi-million $ homes in western Wyoming. I have recently inhereted my Grandfather's old wood turning lathe(A 1962 Craftsman!!) and the turning tools with it. I set up the lathe and it seems to work great! Problem is, all the tools are very dull. The straight edges are easy to sharpen.Can anyone give me some info on how to sharpen the round ended tools without ruining them? Thanks in advance! BB
