I've been struggling with the same issue - specialist bits are almost impossible to find. Did my last grooves using a drill press and sliding the frame on a guide under a bit. Unfortunately the result wasn't ideal - but at lest gave me an accurate starting point for filing...

Incidentally discovered ready bar works incredibly well as a file...

Hello, I've been using a double hack saw blade. I tape two together with strong plastic tape. You could add or subtract blades as your groove demands. Just need a good eye to go around the fork and line up when you get there. You could also bolt them together with 4-40 bolts and nuts.
