Definition of presentment:
Furthermore it will be readily perceived that though each tool may have its faces, whose junction forms the cutting edge, at the same angles, yet the strength of the cutting edge is varied by the position in which the tool is presented to the work, thus the edge in position 2, will be weaker than that in position 4. We have now to consider another point bearing upon the proper presentment of top rake and the presentment of the tool to the work.- "Modern Machine-Shop Practice, Volumes I and II", Joshua Rose.
