Have anyone come up with a way to sharpen knives on the side of the wheel?

In theory only... I never did much beyond this thread:

I think it's doable though.

Wootz at Knife Grinders uses this approach in volume sharpening documented here, so yes it works but you will have to devise a jig system.

Volume sharpening in a professional sharpening shop.  No jigs, just draw the blade across (however many times) and move on to the next grit size smaller.  Requires grit on both sides of the wheels, so cannot be done with Tormek wheels.  I do not know what has become of the system in Knife Grinders' shop.

Quality is like buying oats.  If you want nice, clean, fresh oats, you must pay a fair price. However, if you can be satisfied with oats that have already been through the horse, that comes at a lower price.
