Restoration

One of my passions is restoration of old tools, giving them many more years of use. I always work to maintain the integrity of original material and design.

Cast Iron Cookware

I de-rust and condition cast iron cookware starting with an electrolysis bath. There is seldom any need for any further surface conditioning with the exception of possibly some light sanding. Then, the conditioning makes them look and cook great.

Lawn Mower Blade Sharpening Mobile Alabama Area

Lawn Mower Blade Sharpening

Lawn Mower Blade Sharpening

 

A customer dropped off a Ninja lawn mower blade for sharpening and it definately needed sharpening. These are good blades but like all other blades the factory specs call for a cutting edge only as sharp as a butter knife. After looking at the beating this blade had taken, I decided to sharpen the blade somewhat different that the specs. Why? Well, quite simply, a butter knife is not very sharp.

I profiled a shoulder behind the cutting edge which was ground down “only as sharp as a butter knife,” and then put a super sharp edge ahead of that. What will this give my customer? Unless the mower is being used as a bush hog, my customer should get many cuts with a super sharp edge and once that edge dulls there will be a factory spec edge which again will give many cuts. I will wait until this customer has something to say or ask about the blade at which time I will give you the results of the change.

Scissor Sharpening Service

Wiss Scissor Sharpening Service

Scissor Sharpening Services

 

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.
