Trouble with the bevel

Joe shelton
My apologies to Mr. Eastwood.

I am not capable of cutting a decent chip with my Pfeil scorp. It's the large one with two handles, and seems to me angled wrong.

When I arrange work well below waist level, the tool is effective, but otherwise it's a scraper.

The bevel is out cannel . I'm considering grinding to an incannel to change the angle of attack.

Any comments?
