Guidelines shown below are for Included Angles (⍺).
Notes are also available on a different web page for Micro / Secondary Bevels.
CB's USB Projection Calculator is recommended for calculating setup for Tormek knife jigs. (The simpler Projection Calculator is also still available.)
Included angle is the same as the bevel angle as only one side is beveled. The back is flat, and it is fundamentally sharpened as if it were a woodworking chisel.
Generally, there is a 120º angle on the leading V. Some chose to round off the pointed tip.
The Tormek SVM-45 works well for these.
