SHARPEN SCISSORS-THIMBLES-Rishton, Lancashire 31 March

“Elle”  being the owner of this very successful business had asked me to come in and  Sharpen a variety of scissors.  Elle makes Wedding Dresses etc so she uses relative types of scissors-seamstress -sewing-pinking scissors long and short -lighter and heavy scissors.

Got myself set up with the Wolff “Twice as Sharp” (we are the European Distributors for this machine) , tools at he ready.  First of all I did cut tests to see the specific parts of each scissor which were blunt.

I sharpened , polished and honed each blade. Cleaned and oiled them. Did a second cut test and invited Elle to test them. She was very happy. Finished my coffee, gave her my receipt for payment and left another happy customer.
