Originally developed by Dayna Schleufer (Shear Mechanix) Ride Line Stones were designed to give the sharpener incredibly accurate results in shaping / maintaining the Ride Line on Curved Shears. Unlike any other stones/hones on the market…Ride Line Stones are unique in Design & Composition. One side is Flat (for the outside curve) the other side has a Radius (for the inside curve) the design of these stones allows the user to follow the contour of scissor blade with incredible accuracy and cutting power.
RLStones currently come in (2) abrasive compositions:
RLStones come in a wide range of grits:
The Ride Line Stone Holder is machined out of 6061 Aluminum and is ergonomically designed to allow the Stones to be individually held in place while using the holder. The Holder & the Stones can then be rotated on a Diamond Lapping plate to resurface and maintain the original convex radius of the Ride Line Stones. (Atoma #400 Recommended)
The Ride Liner Pro (RLP) uses a unique shimming method that allows the Spine of the blade to act as a guide while giving the blade just enough lift to establish/maintain the “zero” degree bevel angle on the Ride Line that is required for smooth cutting action of the Scissor.
The RLP was initially designed to Re-establish & Maintain Ride lines on Curved Shears…however, the versatility of the RLP allows the user to address many various ride line problems/issues that you might encounter while sharpening all types of Scissors.
The RLP allows you to work on both the Radius and the Flat Side of the Stones….helping you fine tune your needs. Additionally, the Stones can be taken out of the holder and used individually as finger stones
The RLP is not intended to Replace Flat Water Stones.
Because of the design of the RLP….all types of shears/scissors (hair stylists, barber, groomer, curved or straight) can be worked on…Excluding Thinner Blades & Serrated Blades (these blades will Damage Stones).
RLP Comes With the Following:
Additional Ride Line Stones are sold separately.
The Bandit Bar Polishing Compound (Bandit Bar) is a remarkable proprietary blend of abrasives that allows the sharpener to reach a level of polished metal that will exceed manufacture's factory finish. This stuff is a “Game Changer” when a deep polished finish is desired!
The consistency of the Compound is much like a Crayon and is applied directly to the pad (See video). As the pad seasons, less frequent applications are required. The Compound sticks firmly to the pad with no fly-away (no mess). Clean-up: Only a microfiber cloth is needed…no sprays, no liquids…!!
Bandit Bar (BB) Polishing Compound is intended to be used exclusively with Bandit Polishing Pads (BPP) to achieve the desired results.
Bandit Polishing Pads (BPP) come in two blends. They are 6 inch PSA pads.
A very unique tool that allows you to very quickly change abrasive disks by centering the sandpaper on the plate. Just drop the plate in the fixture, then find the edge of the fixture with the new abrasive disk and roll onto the plate (works also on hook & loop).
Additionally, some abrasive disks vary in size…by placing/spacing the magnets (included) evenly along the outside edge of the fixture this allows you to still accurately fit slightly oversize 6” disks.
Simply fit the abrasive to the plate…and hold down the plate/abrasive disk and lift up on the fixture…done!!
Abrasive base plates are Laser Cut of 0.045” Steel and then Galvanized (protective zinc coating applied) on both sides.
