Really don’t understand what you are trying to do, but here are mostly bowl gouge angle used by some woodturners.

Looks like have a knock off an Ellsworth jig have no idea what the preset angle on that jig. Learning curve is finding that bevel angle for each gouge whether bowl or spindle gouge works for you. Some turners like short bevels and others like loner bevels on their tools. To further complicate things can have either finger nail or side grind on bowl or spindle gouge. Some turners only use one type and some turners use both for different turnings.

You might take a look at these planer belts for sharpening your turnint tools.
