Saw one of these online made of aluminum for 1/4’’ turning tool bits so decided to make it out of wood. Simply drill the 2 holes, one for the bit {1/4’‘} and one for the screw. I predrilled for a wide thread sheet metal screw as to not to split the wood. Set the screw in the wood then backed out, put the screw to the grinder to get the point off some so it will square better with the bit. Set your angle on the grinder and one medium motion from left to right and its sharp. Took about 10 minutes to make.

Dave, I will have to make one of them, it will beat trying to hold the bit in my fingers or with channel locks! Thanks for the useful idea that will save me some cash.
