did you buy a side beveler or a base beveler or combo?
You cant put metal back on... so you cannot go over 90 deg. just down. every degree more takes more metal. i probably have a 5 degree on my park stick.

If you don't understand how basic edge bevel geometry works, read this theory about how geometry affects ride and a brief philosophy behind some tuning strategies: Edge bevel tips for ski and snowboard

Otherwise, don't do it. Take it to a shop.
