The bevel illustrated in Fig. 54, with the clamping screw in the end of the handle, is the most accurate and the most easily adjusted style of this indispensable tool. The blades are made from 6 to 12 inches in length, and have a slot in one end, which admits of that end being shortened to meet the requirements of work.
The small Universal bevel, illustrated in Fig. 55, like the adjustable try-square, is not an expensive tool, and will be found generally useful, especially in working the draft on patterns, and in turning thc parts of patterns on the wood lathe which cannot be reached with an ordinary bevel. The set-off in the blade increases its capacity and usefulness, bo that any angle, however slight, can be obtained.
One 3-inch Universal, and one 8-inch or 10-inch ordinary bevel, will meet all the requirements of the pattern maker for the beveled edges and surfaces and the draft of pattern work.
