I have no idea either.  At the present time I only use two of the profiles; the 10 (white), and the 4 (green).  As my 10 blades are rejected out I will only have 4 and 7 Turbo's.  At that time I will have no need for the profile gauge.   ;D

WM marketed an 1 1/8" pitch blade for a while and may still do so.

This is the blade gauge set I got from Wood-Mizer.   I think I picked it up at Paul Bunyan a few years ago for about $9.   I only use 9 and 4 bands so I only keep those two templates on the key chain.

Finally had a rainy day to mark blades and came across a question... does the whole tooth fit tooth and gullet or just the tooth? I was marking out blades and they all seemed to fit the 10 degree side although the gullet wasn't fitting, and then after marking a few blades I randomly checked 4 degree (13, 9, and 7 didn't fit so didn't bother with 4 at first) and it also seems to fit although the 4 degree mark even the gullet fits -_- so how have other people used theirs and found the best effect? as there is a dig difference between a 4 degree and a 10
