Guidelines shown below are for use with the Tormek SVS-50 Multi Jig using the Closed Seat. The method for measuring the projection is shown below.
There is a separate page in this handbook for Lacer-style Skew Chisels.
|Edge (Included) Angle ()||Skew Angle
|40°||25° - 55°||20°||20° - 35°||Straight Edge
||30°||20°||65 mm||B||For tight spots, detail work and finest finish. However, this is harder to control and is not recommended for starter-level turners.|
|45°||55 mm||B||For broad application. Easier to control than a 30° edge angle.|
|40°||25° - 55°||n/a||Radius Edge
||30°||30°||75 mm||B||For tight spots, detail work and finest finish. However, this is harder to control and is not recommended for starter-level turners.|
|45°||20°||65 mm||B||For broad application. Easier to control than a 30° edge angle.|
