Default Board Bevel

Just wondering, if my board has a 1* bevel, what angle sharpener would I use to sharpen, but maintain the original 1*? Would it be 88*, which would be 1* on each side?

Is it a 1 degree side bevel or base bevel? Or is it both? Find out

Its most probably a base bevel. In which case the edge angle will be 91degrees.

If it is just get a guide for that.

If the side is 1 degree, use the 89 angle.

So you will want the 91* angle. Just check if it has a side bevel as well because that can affect some sharpeners, depending on the type. Some just have a guide for a file whilst others go right on both sides of the edge at the same time.

If it has a 1* side bevel as well as a the 1* base bevel then you will have a 90* edge.

Hand beveling is such a hassle, just take it to the shop. Mine charges 10 bucks to bevel the edges.

I 2nd that. Its barely worth getting your own stuff unless you really like playing with tools or you want to tune all of the time. A good shop will do better job anyway with the machines they use.
