First attempt at scissors - vibrations

Well I think I must have done something wrong on my first attempt at sharpening scissors as pretty bad vibrations when I tried sharpening. Should I use the supplied T8 stone?

Looking at previous posts I am wondering if it was because I used my CBN wheel?.....or because some of the modern scissor types are such hard steels?

Either way I quickly gave up.

Any thoughts welcome.


EDIT.... I just saw the previous post to mine , so I suppose I have my answer  :)


Use the standard stone, the vibration and squealing comes with sharpening scissors.

Thanks for letting me know...I will have another attempt. ;)
