Hmmm.... We are talking cabinet scraper here (Stanley No 80) not card scraper...

...Like this (ignore the alternative blade in my fingers)

Well the card, #112 and #212 should be at 90.
And the #80 should be half that.

I think the above maybe correct.

I have to agree with Bob - 45 degrees and burnish a hook.

Now Ralph,

Your original question referred to the angle to which the blade was usually ground. For the record, I agree that would be 45º. But as to whether it should be ground to 45º, I think that may be a matter of personal choice. I mean, it really doesn't matter, given that the hook determines the angle. Right? :D

Tom

Thank you! My 1st soggy points in years.
Chuck, I didn't want to take away from you my friend. :(
But I happened to be up at that time of morning.
