    I am new to lathe work. I am a bit confused as to what angle I should sharpen the graver and secondly what shape should the tip of the graver be. I have researched and it seems an angle of 45 deg. is the norm but on the vids it looks a lot steeper angle.
    Should the tip be a diamond shape or should it be just a straight edge.
