I am bashing out drawers today. Unicorned the required chisels. Prepared chisels as usual except lowered bevel angle from 30 to 25 degrees. Touched stick to wheel for 2 seconds +/-. Touched chisels to wheel for 3 seconds+/-. The bright glint of light at the very tip says its done and good enough.

The convex bevel acts as a convex mirror under a light source. The bright, narrow band can not be missed if it is there and it doesn't take much to apply it.
