Quote from: john.jcb on June 29, 2019, 12:44:34 AMThe first thing I would suggest is to watch a couple of videos on the subject.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IVl8lTiMlAAhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HGFeBd8ZspMI would not do this freehand.The angle is such that in my opinion you really need the jig. I have done a number of scissors and I think there is a definite learning curve involved. I did my first sharpening on sacrificial scissors where there was no loss if I was not successful. After that I found a box of scissors at work that were going to be discarded (thanks to going pretty much paperless) and worked on those. I have since done a few for customers. One thing I found was that many of the scissors were gummed up with glue from tape. I started all with a good cleaning. I also found that many needed tightening and a drop of lubrication. This actually brought some back into the serviceable region. I used a marker when setting the angle as I found that there is no standard angle especially between brands. Take your time and do not apply too much pressure.

Please try to remove minimal necessary amount of steel. If you remove too much steel than it may happen that the tips do not meet again! Some scissors blades strongly vibrate in the jig and produce strange howling sounds. To reduce this effect mount the blade in the jig with smallest possible protrusion.Jan
Quote from: RickKrung on June 29, 2019, 09:44:41 AMI agree with Jan. I would not bother with the AngleMaster. Just use the black marker and match the angle - of the small bevel. I will reiterate that you definitely need the scissors jig. Besides, the scissors jig platform is preferred by many for making other jigs. It has better geometry than the other Tormek tool rests.
