Last pair of shears
« on: March 15, 2020, 12:12:25 AM »
Greetings all,


Thought to share possibly the last pair of large shears I will intentionally buy. Since I use big bolts only slightly during a project, I've switched to hunting for small ones as I use them constantly.

Nice looking pair, by the shape they look like a large pair of Heinisch.

I have done a fair amount more on the second pair, the faces that the hinge hold together had to be closed down to get the right blade spacing which is a fussy and time consuming task. Blades have been hollow ground and lapped to fit and then sharpened and they are now performing well, they still feel a but heavy along side other pair of the same size but are very strong and the precision is excellent.

The handles still need to be painted with a 2 pack polyurethane and I have not made up my mind on the outside of the blades but they are shaping up well to be a pair I use on my own table.
