I'm a Super-Noob but one of my end goals is to learn to sharpen Salon Shears/Scissors. Just wondering if any one on here is experienced w/that and maybe adding it to the Task Specific section. Thx.

Oh, awesome!

Again, although I got a loooooong way to go to do this professionally, my end goal is to have a mobile sharpening side business and I have "in's" on nearly 8 Salons. I've seen the way most of the "Sharpening Guys" are sharpening the shears (one or two step process) and am confident the WE can outshine them.

I would love more info on the standard (current) process they're using compared to the WE and details on edge preferences/angles (iv'e heard they need to be "toothy") etc.

Also any info on "shear balancing"

This topic has been up before. IIRC, the point is that shears require quite a different angle from normal knives. If you've got ideas, please let us know.

Exactly. I've always assumed some sort of adapter would be needed. Like remove the arms, bolt on risers and put the arms on the risers.

But if there's some kind of crazy way to mount them in the current rig, I'm willing to try it.
