Windsor mortice and tenon

Derek Cohen (in Perth, Australia)
What the difference in seating the tenon is between a 6 degree reamer (ala Pete Galbert/Tim Malley) and a 12 degree reamer (ala Lee Valley)?

Pete Galbert/Tim Malley ...

Lee Valley ...

Allied to this, the shopmade reamer (ala PG) will scrape while the metal reamer (ala LV) will slice. No doubt the latter holds an edge longer. Are there other benefits for one over the other?

Regards from Perth

Derek
