Scissor Sharpening Service

Wiss scissors offer a lot of quality for the price paid. I find that the older Wiss scissors to be of a little higher quality than those made today but maybe that’s just my imagination. I tend to give preferance to bringing older stuff back to life instead of replacing with something newer.

I was recently sent two scissors by a customer in Illinois – a pair of Wiss No 27 and a Wiss No 28. Wonderfully made scissors with the same problem: rusted and frozen pivot screw.

Like most scissor manufacturers, the Wiss factory pings the threads of the pivot screw after initial adjustment making the screw impossible to adjust later. Many a good pair of scissors have been discarded simply because they could no longer be adjusted.

Rather than discard the scissors (afterall, she did go to the trouble to mail them to me), I decided to drill out the rusted-in-place pivot screws. I then re-tapped the threads (one 10-28 and one 8-24) and used star driven stainless screws. After adjustment the screws were set with a thread lock compound rather than pinging. I like this setup and hope the customer does too. If the thread lock compound does ever allow the pivot screw to move, a slight adjustment with a T-10 star drive should do the trick.

Sharpening A Disston One-Man 36″ Crosscut Log and Timber Saw

 

 

 

crosscut-saw-teethIt was a pleasure sharpening and setting this Disston one-man 36″ crosscut log and timber saw.

Crosscut saws come in two tooth styles:

(1) tuttle or champion which have two cutting teeth for each raker tooth and

(2) perforated lance which has four cutting teeth for each raker tooth.

sawteethThe champion tooth saw was designed for cutting hardwoods and it consists of two cutter teeth set alternately with an unset raker with a gullet between them. The cutters are wider and more massive than the lance tooth pattern which allows for heavy-duty sawing in hard, dry or frozen wood. The larger teeth are sharpened in more of an almond shape rather than in the pointed shape of a lance tooth.

The perforated lance tooth style was designed for cutting softwoods. However, both saw types were used interchangebly.

The difference between a Champion and Tuttle tooth pattern is the shape of the cutter teeth – whether they’re almond-shaped or straight filed. Tuttle is straight or triangle filed tooth and champion teeth are almond shaped.

Mobile Alabama Lawn Mower Repair

Mobile Alabama Lawn Mower Repair

 

Just a reminder for my customers – my services are just a hobby that gives me a little extra income and something to keep me busy. I only want so much work, so if you need a lawn mower repaired please call me at 251-583-5955 to see what my schedule looks like. I may have one or two jobs already lined up or my wife and I might be doing a little traveling. I hate to disappoint anyone but its better you know up front that I cannot always give timely service on lawn mower repairs.

This mower is an example of a real time-eater: another mower left outside. The customer said a tire went flat and she left the mower where it was – for two years. Luckily the hood covered the engine so there was no damage to the engine but the steering was frozen due to rust and the tires had dry rotted. It took a couple of days to free everything up and find new tires. Then a full maintenance was performed – filters, oil change, blade sharpening, etc. Now it runs and cuts good as new.
