Default Tool for tunning edges on MTX/BTX board

I want to tune edges on my T-Rice C2BTX board to 1/2 base/edge angles. I know that a lot of tools are too big and can be very hard to use with MTX edge, but will this tool work?

SKS Base/Side Edge Bevel Multi Tool (includes file)

or is the 70mm file too long?

There is this tool for sharppening the edges
SKS Trail-Ready Edge Trick Diamond Stone Edge Sharpener

But it says that it should be used for tuning. Have you guys got any other suggestions?

You need a really small tool.

Any better examples of what would work? I'm sure there must be people around who played around with edges on this boards. I also have a Capita board for park on which I'm going to have different angles, so a multiedge tool would be perfect.

They make a small cheap edge tool, branded under Dakine, OBJ, and possibly others.

Just take it to a shop anyone that says you can't run MTX/BTX on a machine is full of it.

He didn't mention getting turned away by a shop? Shouldn't happen though...my buddy has thrown my old mtx/btx boards on the machine before. If you know how, or are willing to learn, self-tuning is the way to go imo.
