Put the file in side the handle, then put it along your edge. The flat metal piece of that extends out, runs along the base of your board.

Great side edge tuner

This file guide is heavy so that it is easy to keep it level. It slides evenly along the base. It is easy to grip. It's a great tool. Yeah, it's a little hard to figure out how to put the file in at first, but once you figure it out you'll be very happy.

Do not bother buying those cheap plastic edge tuners. It is physically impossible to keep them level along your entire edge, meaning that you will wind up with a bevel that varies along the legnth of your board.

This tool cannot be used to tune your base edge. The reviewer who said it could is wrong. He also said the kit includes a gummy stone, but that ain't true.

No Instructions

I've used other, cheaper file sets in the past and thought I'd upgrade to the Burton File Guide. How the F do you put the file in?

Like the post above says, this is probably only for the side edge. Apparently like me, he couldn't figure out how to use it. For real. I couldn't figure out how to put the file stone into that professional looking handset if my life depended on it. Unfortunately, there's no directions either. Perhaps I'm doing something wrong, but as it stands, I feel as though this product fails on the fitness of purpose measure.

Burton Fileguide puts an edge on

Nice file guide for tuning up your edges. Well built, nice range of edge bevel angles, quality file and a ceramic stone to boot. Side edge bevel only as far as I can tell.
