Deriving a sketch from another part

Simple predicament here. I have two parts with entirely different features but similar profiles. I'm trying to link the profile sketch of my 2nd part to the 1st parts profile sketch. I was able to do this through assemblies, but the only way I could get the origin/axes to line up on the 2nd part was to Mate>Coincident Origins>Align Axes then Convert Entities from part 1 to part 2. If i did it this method without aligning the axes then the converted sketch on my 2nd part would be out of alignment with the axes and would screw up all my features.

 

I had it going fine at first, but then I realized that whenever I committed changes to my first parts profile, I would have to manually go through and do same changes on the 2nd part. Was hoping to find a good way to link the two such that a profile change in one results in a change in the other.

 

Using 2016 btw.
