I was just messing around, and this was my first try to match the existing hand sharpened shape, so it was a bit of an approximation. For the future and second sharpenings, some bits have flat sides for the set screw, but some have been ground round. Your point is well taken about the next time for the round ones. They could have a small flat ground on them. Also, for complete repeatability, a small flat would have to be ground on the top of the bar where it clamps in the VariGrind. That's doable too. Otherwise, it won't be 'perfect'; but the Mark I eyeball should do a pretty good job. ...GG
