does anyone out there change the setting of the control leg from bowl gogues to spindles  or leave it the same for either? If the difference between 40  and 50 degrees is one inch 9 5 1/2 and 6 1/2) then would 71/2 give you 60 degrees ?

  According to the article you set the control leg of the jig at the top of the second notch from the top and leave it there regardless of which of the three jigs you use or which tool you are sharpening.  I am not sure of your other numbers.
  Now I have a question conerning the templates and the diagrams provided.  I just hope I can ask it in terms that make sense. 
  If you look at template diagram on the left hand side there is a dimension of 6" from the bottom of the template and it is noted as saying to the center line of the grinding wheel.  Now this template sits on the arm of the wolverine jig.  Would I be correct to assume that for me to get the correct angle on my gouges that the center of my grinding wheel should be 6" from the top of the arm of the jig.  If that is the case then I need to raise my grinder by about an inch or so.

6" from the base to center line of the wheel ....take a 2x6...cut 1 that fits from outside to outside ..cut another to just fit the base plate on the pedistal...now measure from the long 2x6 to center of the shaft ..should be 6"
Thats how i did mine anyway

  I guess I did not make much sense when I asked my question.  Let me try it again.  In order to get a proper angle on my gouges using the templates I made using the design provided in the PDF document,  does the center of the grinding wheels need to be 6" from the top of the wolverine arm.  In the drawing there is a dimension that says 6" to center of grinding wheel,  the templates are designed to be used to set the length of the arm from the grinding wheel to achieve a certain degree of angle.   The templates are set on top of the arm so does that mean that the center of the grinding wheels must be 6"above the top of the arm.  The arm I am referring to is the Wolverine jig arm that sticks out the front and has a v-pocket that the vari-grind attachment sits in.

Yes is does, six inches from center of the wheel to the arm is correct. You notice in the photos that the base of the grinder is higher than most.

I had not noticed that before.  Thanks frog for pointing that out.  I guess I should have paid more attention to the photos.

Just an update, I raised my grinder by the needed amount to reach that 6" mark, and I can honestly say that it made a sgnificant difference in the grind of my bowl gouges,  A test run of the tools afterwards and I noticed that the tools were less aggressive and easier to control especially when hollowing the insides of the bowl.
