Let's say you sharpened a knife at 17 degrees per side and that you went through all the grits you had and polished with the strops until you created a super smooth bevel. Next you might change the angle to 20 degrees per side and do a few light strokes with a fine stone like the 1000 diamonds, the micro-fine ceramics or a waterstone. You'd be creating a very tiny bevel at 20 degrees that will have some extra toothiness to it which might suit your cutting requirements. If you do a search on the forums, you'll find a lot of conversation about the virtues of super smooth and toothy edges and the kinds of tasks to which each are suited.

Well... I got my new base bar and the arm sliders that Clay so kindly replaced for me (even though in my ignorance, I butchered the originals up).
I bolted it all together yesterday and everything is working fine. The calibrated markings are great and etched or cut to be more visible than before. I do use the angle cube, but they are nice to have anyway.
Just thought I would let everyone know that I am very happy with the new parts, and even more so with the nice folks at WEPS and the customer service that they provide.
