Hi Wes,
The standard sharpening angles for turning gear is (angles given)
Bowl gouge 55
Roughing gouge 45
Spindel gouge 35
Skew 22 ea side & the rake about 65
Parting tool 60
These are the nominal angles taken as a standard, however its your tool and what ever you feel happy with is what you should stick with. (Just make sure you dont have any shoulders to cause dig ins)
I’ll leave the other questions for the other guys
