I have an SKS "Speed" multi-tuner.
One one side, it says "this side for base beveling only", and on the other side, it shows the name/model.
(here's a pic of the "other" side as described above)
The dial on the top can be used to select angles from 0 - 4 degrees, and there's an arrow that points to the number (between the silverish wheel and the dial on the pic above).
The thing is, there's an arrow on the other side, too. I don't know which arrow corresponds to which side...
I trust that when I'm working on my base edge, I should have the side shown above on top, with the stone inserted like the file that's shown just next to the tool in the picture above (not the one that's actually in the tool), and that when I'm working on the side edge, I put the stone in like the file that's in the tool. (That last sentence was confusing, but if anyone's used the tool, they should know what I mean).
Am I right so far?
Then, do I select the angle by using the arrow that is visible? Or the arrow that's underneath?
And finally, since it says "this side for base beveling only", does that mean only flip it over when using a file to set the base angle? Or should I use the "under" side when using a stone to work on the base edge, as well?
The instructions that came with the tool were useless, at best, and I thought I'd understood the explanation I got at the shop, until I waited a week or so to use it, and realized I hadn't paid enough attention...
Anyone able to help?
