With the 90/88 edge tool, you will only be able to get either 0 or 2 degrees. You'll need a 3 degree tool and you'll one specifically for the base edge and one for the side edge.

If you don't understand how the geometry of beveling works, I'd highly suggest taking it to a trustworthy shop that can set it up for less than the price of a tool, since a good tool can be well over $40. After that, just maintain the edge with a diamond stone and a hard gummy stone being careful to make light passes.
Thanks from what I read dc set this board up to be really forgiving to noobs so it had a 3 but ill run it up to my shop. Well worth the 20 until I figure it all out lol..
