Tuning Tools

I just bought the Dakine Super Tune kit and it came with the edge tuning tool. On one side of the tool it says 90 degrees and on the other side it says 88.Does this mean one side is preset to 2 degrees and the other side is preset to 0 and I don't have to worry about the angle? Also, on each side of the stone there is a different pattern.. One is kinda smooth with slanted lines and the other side is really rough.. What are the different sides for? I know this question may sound stupid but I figured I'd ask before I go ruin my board... Thanks

yes they are preset for tuning the side edge of your board to either 90 or 88. Find out your base bevel and use the corresponding side edge bevel. The rougher side of the file is for actually changing the side edge angle, which I don't recommend using, while the side with straight lines is a finer finish for removing nicks burs and for maintenance of your current bevels.

Oh forgot to mention, the kit came with a 10'' file as well as the edge tuning tool with it's own stone.. How do I go about using the file? Do I put it in the edge tuning tool or no..
