Grinding 25° bevel

The frog on my plane measured at 47.93 ° at what angle should my home made jig be to achieve grinding angle of 25° on my low speed grinder.
I would add drawing but tried 3 all too big. If the last one was smaller it would dissapear.
Thanks

Plane and chisel blades.

Thoughts on sharpening Chisels an plane blades. Four plane blades 8 chisels, arms still ache from last bout of sharpening. Q:Can I push forward and backwards without lifting on forward stroke using stanley guide on diamond plates. Or will forward stroke be counter active to sharpening. Many thanks
