Sorry Kirk to have snipped away all the great history you presented.

I just wanted to note your comment about how convenient it is to have a smaller
bevel on occasion. While I never found a need for the dog leg bevel I do have a

For a size comparison, the Universal Bevel in the middle of the pic is the six
