In another discussion I said my husband sharpens his chainsaw blades and his drill bits on a sanding disk on his bench grinder. Someone asked for photos. So here are some pics of the setup he uses. He does it free hand and it works real well for him.
He started out sharpening drill bits on a portable grinder (I think he said a D - 8 model) at work on a padded disk like this. He liked it, so bought a padded disk and modified to fit on his bench grinder. Then he decided to try sharpening his chainsaw blades and it worked well too (you have to remove the blade from the chainsaw to sharpen it on this disk). Now he always sharpens all of his own blades and bits.
The disks themselves are velcro so you just peel one off and put a new one on when needed.
