Check out this site:

I’ve made a similar tool but instead of a hook, I bought some 1/4” metal-lathe bits and ground them to whatever profile I needed/wanted. It has worked great for me so far,i.e., I have yet to encounter anything I can’t do with them. Total cost for the tool was about $5-8 dollars as I had a bit of 1/2” rod already in the shop. Most of the cost was for the 1/4” bits which I got from Enco.

Hope that helps.
