Anyone have a link to soem scissor sharpening tips that would work with a PP2?

I've got a set I want to play with. It's a Mundial set of tailor shears.
The thumb piece (top) looks to be a 30 degree bevel with ground in perpendicular grooves to help catch cloth. Seems simple enough except for the hollow grind on the backside.

The finger piece (bottom) looks to be the problem as by eye it looks like about a 70 ish degree bevel.
So do you do those by hand?

Also for the hollow grind, do you just do a few fine swipes to remove the burr?

I have to assume this has been asked somewhere, I just can't find it....plus I put it here because it wasn't obvious what topic this fit under.

Thanks all!

Nothing?
I figured someone would scream "don't do it!"

Or...point me at 35 links of data...

Not finding what I'm looking for on the obvious searched sites.

I ended up free handing my scissors since both sides were over 35 degrees and thus not possible to do in the WEPS. Next time they need sharpening I'm considering reprofiling them to fit in the WEPS and see how that holds up.

I'd be interested in any thoughts or experiences on scissor sharpening as well.

Lets ask the Master?
Clay can you provide us with any of your personal experience? I thought I heard your were coming out with a attachment? Is there a way you have found that would help us in the mean time?
Thank you sir!

Scissors are anywhere between 50-80Ëš(often each blade is a different angle[one may be serrated so leave it alone] and often the angle changes along the blade if you do manage to rig them up on the WE then use the dominant angle and also use a sharpie)I would not lower the angle what you may be able to do is stick a wedge or two behind the blade since you may well be able to drop the beveled side down enough so the higher settings on the WE will reach the bevel although you will need long vice bolts to achieve this I await by WE so I cannot exactly say if it will work.
I have an Edge Pro and there is a special scissor attachment although if they are large scissors freehanding should be easy .
Shapen the bevel then when you finish put the back of the blade on the finishing stone to remove the burr.
Once you have done both blades (or one only)close the handles whilst pushing the blades apart until they are closed then squeeze the points together as you open them repeat 3/4 times and the gently close the blades they should feel smooth then.

Leo,
Thank you that is a great tip! ;) I had no idea there was something to do when done? :woohoo:

I saw that tip on a youtube video, it was the one great thing I've found in the research so far. And this guy did things to those scissors that made me cringe, he was why people complain about a so called professional ruining their knife/scissors/bladed-do-dad.
Ah well, without guys like that, we wouldn't look so good!

Okay a friend brought over two scissors to sharpen. Both are made by "Wiss Inland". One pair is really bulky looks like a linen type scissor, black handles, it's old timer. The other pair are paper type with a finger "chole" on the bottom handle, looks like chrome handles till you get to the blade then carbon looking with patina. Old timer too, kinda cool. She actually cuts her hair with these? I really don't think that is their intended purpose?
Okay the question is? Under the loupe the grind seems very coarse? Do you stay with coarse stones/files? Is there a rule of thumb? I am not sure what to do? I will tackle them if someone can answer this question?
Please and thank you,
Eamon
