edge tool question

Sorry for the newbie question, but when using a double sided edge tool (for instance the Dakine Tool with 88* and 90*) - if the 88 is facing upwards are you cutting an 88* angle or the angle that is listed on the side that is face down (90*)?


Thanks in advance.

88* if the 88* side is up.

Face down.

Use the single cut side of the file (//) for general edge maintaining and pull only in the direction of the arrow on the file.

I have that tool.

if you're still skeptical, look at the bottom of the tool

one side will be bigger than the other (out from the mold line)

Hmmm...I thought they were all the same. I have an RC edge tool and the instructions state that the degree cut is per the side of the number . My bad if the dakine is different.
