Ah, he winged it.
We have a shipsaw with a giant bevel gauge (custom) with extra long bevel arm. The cut man stands at the cut and calls out the bevel gauge numbers written on the timber while the table man stands on the table while adjusting the bevel to the correct number on the gauge slowly. Slow steady constant pressure on the bevel arm gives you a clean accurate running bevel. Changing it suddenly a few degrees every few feet gives a series of angles instead, which requires much more clean up. Still, not a bad solution if you can't find a helper and must cut running bevels on your own.
O you who turn the wheel and look to windward,
Consider Phlebas, who was once handsome and tall as you.
