We continue to hold the chisel vertical. The bevel is what causes the chisel to ramp down a 60 degree slope; we don't need to angle the entire chisel.

Incidentally, I had commented some years ago about Roubo's worker standing somewhat away from the chisel, but I did not realize until today that Roubo also makes this point in his commentary. Hovering over the chisel is tiring and does not help the results.
