Flummoxed by Grinding

Curt Putnam
I now have a Rikon half-speed grinder with CBN wheel so wheel dressing is not an issue nor grinder speed be an issue. What beats me up is setting projection and angle. I am using the BGM-100 and angle setting jigs but I find that to be extremely fussy. I do not understand how one can (for example) take a chisel with a primary bevel of 30° and a secondary bevel of 35° and then reset the primary bevel to 20° freehand. Would one or more of you helpful folks care to address the issue?

TIA
