Default Rocker arm resurfacing

Looking for a rocker arm resurfacing attachment for a valve grinder.

Or pictures of one with dimensions so I can build one.

I have a black and decker valve grinder.

My Kwick-Way has an attachment that is nothing more than a slotted, adjustable bracket with a perfictly vertical post a little in front of and off to the side of the stem tip refacing wheel (cupped) on the back end of the machine. There are a pair of centering cones for the rocker to go between that you drop over the pin. You hold the rocker down and with a little pressure against the cupped wheel, cycle the slide a half a dozen times over the rocker tip and it follows the radius around on the tip really well. It works better than you would think.
