Or you do base, side, then base again. Seems like you don't need to run anything along at 45 degrees.
You don't remove the hanging burr at a 45 degree angle. you run the stone flat against your base and in contact with the base edge with medium pressure.
You need a very hard gummi or i prefer an actual stone like and arkansas,ceramic alu-oxide or true hard stone for this purpose.
you can running a gummi down the edge at a 45 degree angle as a very last step, bjut ezxtremmly lightly just to have an x-tra smooth edge. this will not help with the hanging burr issue caused by tuning and polishing your side edge. This must be done flat against the base edge!
