35+ year old scissors that need to be brought back from the dead. And, here we go.....

Every once in a while, I get to sharpen a hedge trimmer. Sharpened it and tested it out on my boxwood hedge. The trimmer works very well and my hedge looks great. Bonus, a win - win situation. I like that! πŸ˜‰πŸ‘

I sharpened rust today! This garden shear got rehabilitated today from pure rust to fully functioning. It cuts wet grass and newspaper. Sharp, that is!

Ken was very friendly and helpful. He tried his best to service an old pair of sewing shears but apparently they had been dropped and were bent in a manner that he was unable to correct. As such he didn't charge me anything for his services, even after I offered. He provided instruction on how to verify sharpness for scissors and showed me exactly what was wrong with my pair as well as where they were sharpened and still cut properly. Highly recommended!
