    George, right on but for soft woods I use 20 degrees for chisels as I do a lot of hand cut dovetails with pine or popular as secondary wood; one note about the Work Shape is that for chisels it is off by degree or two from 90 (at least mine is), but not an issue if that's the only shapening and honeing system you use. Also I don't recommend the Work Sharp for turning tools, there are much better systems for that.
