    I have searched the web since you first show up the photo of yours, with no luck.

    I bought one of these from Ausee, I think it was the hex block will check when I finish my coffee.

    Nice looking tools William. Love things that work and look good.
    I made mine from pieces of hex bar. Drilled required size hole on the Myford an added a grub screw.
    Not pretty but functional.

    Good idea Phil. After I made mine I did a search and saw some folks hot glue hex nuts to their tools for sharpening. Whatever works, I'm just lucky enough to have a MW lathe and Mill to make mine.
