# Alternate Bevel Names

I know that edge bevels can be refered to by 3 different numbers. One way is just the single digit bevel degree, another way is the bevel degree in the 90's, and the third way is the bevel degree in the 80's. I don't know what the numbers in the 80's are for a 2 degree and 3 degree side bevel.

example: 3 degree side bevel can be refered to as a 3, 93, nad some number in the 80's.

Can someone please tell me the the 80's number for a 2 and 3 degree side bevel?:
If you assume a 0 degree base bevel, a 2 degree would be an 88 and a 3 would be an 87.

regardless of base bevel, 88 is 2 degree of side edge bevel & 87 is 3 degrees. This is not your final combined(with base edge bevel) angle as pointed out above.
When someone quotes base bevel and side bevel as 1,3 does that mean the side bevel is actually 4 degrees as measured from the running surface? (which is assumed to be flat for this example).

No, it means you do the side at 3 & base at 1.

Let me try that again.

Assume I have 2 bevel guides. SVT 1 degree side edge bevel guide and an SVT final cut 1 degree base bevel guide.

Is the actual metal edge going to be roughly 90 degrees? Or something other than a right angle??

I'm not so much interested in precisely what the angle is as I am in the concept.

Lets say I want a "sharper edge" and buy an SVT 3 degree side bevel guide and use the same 1 degree base bevel. I don't think I end up with a 3 degree differential do I?? I suspect something around 2 degrees.

The side edge is 3 degrees off 90 degrees from the actual base surface but not 3 degrees off 90 degrees from the base edge----correct??
Correct!
Atomicman, thanks!
Thanks
