Kim, I have a small (1/2”) skew chisel and the edge is ground at (or nearly) a 75 degree angle. I use this to do final forming of the recess for my bowl bottoms. I’ve done about a dozen this last couple of months this way, most with a 1/8” deep recess (the minimum – and I check it with a caliper depth-gauge) for turning on my SuperNova 2 chuck.

You should be able to use a standard protractor to check the angle of your scraper – though before you waste all that steel, give the skew chisel method a try.
