Don’t be caught without file guides if you’re doing your own tuning. They make filing easier and accurate, and beveling your edges makes riding easier and fun.
The Race Place’s Side of Beast is a top-end side edge file guide and work-mate of the Bevel Beast. Race Place offers a “Pro” model ($34) for shop use which is all metal and a “Standard” model ($20) aimed at the home tuner made of a hard polymer.Both models use bevel plates which attach to the guide to give accurate side edge bevels in one degree increments from zero degrees to six degrees. Each comes with one and two degree plates, giving you the option of zero to two degrees of side edge bevel. Additional angle plates are available for $7 each so you don’t have to buy a new bevel tool for each desired angle of side edge bevel.
