Default Sharpening Magnetraction

I searched and couldn't find a thread about this so if there is one just call me a dope and link me to it.

How do you properly sharpen a Magnetraction board? I have a few ideas of how I would go about doing it but I'm looking for the proper way. I have a bunch of rough edges from some early season adventures over some rocks and rough features and would like to smooth them out.

Edit: I found the mag tuning tool, any other options with a regular sharpening tool or just a stone or file?

I used to run it on the machine it's not hard to sharpen it if you go with the contours of the edge just do it like you would any other board.

NO problems running it through a regular board tuning machine as long as you are careful? did you sharpen the base and sides?

I made a tool to hold my chrome file and stone by running a block of plastic though a table saw with the angle I wanted. Then just add some hole, bolts and another plate to clamp with. It has a narrow width that gets Mag edges nicely.

For the base edge I just wrap the file in tape to get the desired angle.

its a pain in the ass, but it can still be done with a regular sharpening tool. I havent personally seen 'magnetraction sharpeners' per se, so I dont know it has a little curve or what's so special about it.

Yeah I looked at them online and couldn't tell if there was something that different about them....

Base and side no problems at all just have to go a bit slower to match the contours.

I attempted and failed to find anything... maybe I suck... Or maybe you could just be a nice guy and link to the page.
