From the Introduction:
I wrote this booklet because I couldn't find enough information about how to sharpen my wife's scissors and she wasn't completely happy with shipping her $150 pair of scissors to the manufacturer and then having to wait a couple weeks before they were returned. Sometimes they didn't cut any better than when she sent them! I thought to myself, "I could do a better job than that", I just needed someone to teach me. Training was half way across the Country and I couldn't take time off work. I found a guy that built the type of machine I wanted and also was willing to teach me. I paid him THOUSANDS, got the equipment, and 3 days training. After that, I was on my own.
This booklet is designed to remove the obstacles I ran into. You will benefit because all of the information you need to know about sharpening styling shears is in it. It will help you start a business from scratch, earn a very decent living and give you financial independence. - Bob Treat
