The V way give more consistent location of the tail stock and saddle.. By design the flat ways require clearance between the two ways allowing the saddle and tail to float by several thousanths and therefore have an increase variability from setting to setting while the V way of the saddle and tail simply settle to the same alignment with repeatability.
