Three factors determine the shape
Three factors determine the shape of a gouge or a skew. By controlling these and repeating them at each sharpening, you will get an exact replication of the shape and edge angle. It will save you time and steel on your tools, but maybe even more important, you can trust that your tools always will perform in the exact same way at the lathe, after each sharpening.
