    I'm pretty sure it was for a screw type holdfast with a flat bar. The bar kept the screw upright. I've got some old catalogs, I'll take a look when I get to the shop.

    That's a sweet sharpener Pete. I too am a draftsman mostly in my former career, but still have my board set up and draw by hand. I would have bought that sharpener over a new one too.
