The sliding bevel is composed of two parts, the stock and the blade. The stock is usually made from rosewood which is a high quality material. The blade is made from hardened and tempered steel. The blade can be adjusted to a variety of angles and locked in position. This is useful when a line has to be marked at an angle on wood.

A typical use is seen below.

   

1. The stock of the sliding bevel is held firmly against the wood and the lock is loosened allowing the angle of the blade to be altered.

2. The lock on the sliding bevel is tightened so that the angle of the blade cannot be altered accidentally. A marking knife is used to mark a line at the correct angle.

3. The wood is cut to the correct angle using a saw/fretsaw or appropriate tool.

 

QUESTION: Draw a sliding bevel and sketch one example of its use.
