Ellsworth Signature Gouge grind

>Hello All,
I just bought the DES gouge; right out of the box it was fantastic to turn with but now I need to start to consider sharpening. Do you need the DEjig or can you get the 'correct' grind with any system (i.e., wolverine)?
I am still learning about the correct sharpening/grind angles for turning tools. I have come across people talking about a fingernail grind and a side grind. At times, it appears that these are two different types of grind but I thought they were the same. Are they the same type of grind or am I missunderstanding something?
