Angle between a scribe line on a tool relative to either the high side of the well or magnetic north. Gravity tool face is the angle between a tool reference axis and gravity in a vertical plane, used when the hole is inclined greater than approximately 8º. Magnetic tool face is the angle between the tool reference axis and magnetic north in a horizontal plane, used when the hole is inclined less than approximately 8º.
