How do i properly use my dakine edge tool

it has an 88 and 90 degree side. but i cant visually tell the difference?

i know i have to run it down one way from nose to tail. when i do the other side should i flip the file so its going against the grain the same way?

also what is the diff between the 90 and 88 degree side. the angle? i cant seem to tell the difference when looknig at it.

and is this only for base edging or can i use it for the side edge as well?

thanks

first off what ever edge you want to put on your board you put that side towards the board. if you want a 90 degree edge then put those numbers toward the board. you will have to flip the file so you can both sides of the board and remember to only go one way with the file never go back and forth. and you can use this tool for both edges it is a little difficult to get the hang of the first few times but trust me it will become much easier in time. i have usually but a 90 degree on my board but i have rode on a board that i did with a 88 degree edge and i really cant tell that much so i guess it is just up to you on that one. hope this helped a little bit.

On the Dakine tool, that's wrong. Here is a thread that notes this:

yes there is, 90 is more perpendicular than 88 That you can tell by the naked eye? Not really.

how does one know which way to pull file on the single line side that looks like this ////

if youre dragging the file in this direction --> should the file look like this ///// or \\\\

does it even matter?

ok totally confused. sorry! is that looking at the file from up top or a side view?

if side view, im assuming the bottom of this drawing is what is actually touching the edge correct?
