Standard bowl gouge question

Hi to all the tormek gurus, just got my hands on a tormek kit for bench grinding and am happy with the swept back grinds/skews etc.
Just slightly confused as to how to sharpen a standard bowl gouge, say 55 degree bevel with 'normal' wing profile.

Im seeing a recipe of 4/65/A but thought i needed the jig more at 1 or 2 to not get so much of a sweep back ??

Any advice gratefully received.




I have captured information here about that.
