Sissors on diamond wheel

I heard that setting high angle on the CBN wheel will cause problem with CBN grit.

How about diamond wheel? Can I sharpen scissors on it?

Good question, Sharpco.
I wasn't sure about the answer, so I emailed Stig. Here is his reply:

Hi Ken,
The vibrations that can occur between a wheel and tool when sharpening on a high angle is what can damage any type of wheel with CBN or diamond. So it doesn't matter if it's CBN or Diamond. A careful user will most likely have no issues on either type of wheels but there is a risk, like on the regular stones, that something might happen if the user is not concentrated on the task.

Thank you Ken :)

Sharpco, you're very welcome.

With all the hype about diamond and CBN wheels, it is easy to forget that the "Original" wheels may actuallybe better at some things. I think that for those planning to replace their SG-250 with a different wheel, it is wise to make the replacement with some usable abrasive on the SG for circumstances like scissors.

I agree. I have a Twice as Sharp scissors sharpener, but I still need SG-250.

Quick reply, Sharpco. I didn't realize pixels could travel that fast!    :)
