The angle cube gives you the reality.
If you have a new thick stone, the actual angle will be lower angle than an older,thinner stone.
The good thing about the angle cube is that you can now set your angles precisely.
To be exact in your angle, you also need to account for the angle of the knife as well.
Henkles & Wustof are 4° thick knives. Most gyutos seem to be 3°.
To account for the knife,you will have to add half of the knife angle,i.e 2° , to what angle you want on the edge. You mentioned that you want a 15°, so the knife on the EP is already tilting at ,say 4°, so half of that is 2°....set the arm at 17° and ,bingo, you now have a 15° edge.
Hope I explained that well enough. If not ask for clarification.
