Point tool grinding - Lucas?

>Seems like I read or saw a clever way of using a large hex nut to index the sides when grinding a three-facet point tool but I can't remember the details. Was this a John Lucas special?

Seems like it involved resting three of the sides on the toolrest while grinding. I tried this and it worked well, but I didn't come up with an elegant way to hold the nut firmly on the tool shaft. ???
