I gently slide the edge of the blade into a sliding bevel that is loose and at a lower angle than what I think the tool is.  If you gently slide the tool (with the back referenced on the square edge obviously) until it opens the bevel far enough to touch the edge and then tighten the bevel it’s easy enough to reference a protractor ( I printed out a paper one and glued it to my shooting board, with the base line on the square front edge of the board.  This makes it easy to read an angle, or set one if I’m doing a different task.)
