|8" Scissor Sharpening Machine
|This is the 8" diamond wheel, variable speed scissor sharpening machine built from the ground up for sharpening
scissors to blunt cut, and/or to sharpen beauty scissors for slide cutting. This machine is the only machine out there that
will sharpen every type of scissor correctly. From dog groomers, to barbers, sewing, industrial scissors, and stylists at
the beauty salons. All of these customers (except beauty salons) want their scissors sharpened to blunt cut. Most
sharpeners out there don't realise it, but only beauty scissors should be sharpened to side cut. If you learn how to
sharpen scissors to blunt cut, you will have a huge advantage over your competition who sharpen all scissors the same
as they sharpen beauty scissors. Scissors that are sharpened to blunt cut will cut a straight line every time without
pushing any hair, they are silky smooth to the feel and can be set loose for people who may be developing or already
have corporal tunnel. Again, scissors sharpened to blunt cut are for every type of scissor except beauty scissors which
must be sharpened to slide cut, big difference in these two methods!
For those who purchase this machine you will receive a free eBook on sharpening scissors to blunt cut. In it you will
learn how and why it was necessary to develop this method of scissor sharpening, and how it can improve your scissor
sharpening business especially for barbers and dog groomers. For stylists who want their beauty scissors sharpened to
slide cut this machine will work perfectly using the tried and true Wolf method of sharpening beauty scissors. You will
need to purchase the wolf convexing clamp, (which comes with instructions, and a video on how to sharpen beauty
scissors) and an 8" 1000 grit diamond wheel for perfectly convexed beauty scissors
