1* base bevel = 91* edge
2* base bevel = 92* edge
1* side edge = 89* edge
2* side edge = 88* edge
most all mtn board have a 90* edge with both the base and side edges at 1* each
freestyle boards might have a 1 or 2* base bevel because this will make the edges rise off the base, therefore making it less "catchy" when doing board slides or what not.
hardcore freeride boards might have a 1 or 2* side edge making the edges extremely sharp and unforgiving.
if u want to maintain your boards factory edges....u need to get the correct type of file guides.
I bought mine from SWIX. i have both a 1* base bevel guide and a 1* side edge guide. NEVER attempt to do ur edges freehand.
Without me, my board is useless. Without my board, I am useless
