Looking to convert bitmap - amiga font

I've just spent the best part of a day creating a nice 8*8 font to use in a program.
It's a standard bitmap graphic, I need to convert this into .font; does anybody have experience with this and know a good program to use?

Try Typesmith I think it converts a number of different font types.

Thanks, it does indeed; and would be ideal as the end of a tool chain.
What I need to start is something that will grab an image to create the font - Font Grabber is rough around the edges but presents the correct files after use, I haven't got the font working yet (the interface is rather minimalist) but it looks hopeful. =)

EDIT: Personal Fonts Maker 2 by Cloanto looks even better!
