I have never used it but I would not attempt any convex salon shears on it,far too much of a chance ruining them.

I haven't used it either but have jury rigged scissors on the Apex. I'd call or email Ben Dale (EP inventor) about any specific tips about using it. He is great for helping people either via email or on the phone.

In addition to the Pro model being quite a bit more expensive, the scissor attachment isn't cheap either. This may be one reason not many people have used it. Here is how you can sharpen scissors on the Apex. Use a cloth or something to protect the blade from scratches from the vise grips or whatever you use to hold the blade in place. Also, don't tighten the vise grips enough to crack the plastic on the EP.

It looks like to me that the scissor attachment works alot like the mod for the apex,look at this picture if you havent already
Image use the sharpie trick to make sure you are hitting the edge and go from there with stone progression and the drill stop collar trick

I've been using the scissor attachment for a few months now. Most scissors are pretty straightforward. I eyeball the angle, mark them with magic marker to confirm it's correct and make any minor adjustments after lightly drawing a fine stone across the blade. Go through the recommended progression and de burr.
I rescued a pair of abused hair shears last week. I wouldn't attempt a convex edge until you're confident with the attachment. I wouldn't have tried it without contacting Ben Dale first for advise. I concentrated on the rise, the area where the 2 blades contact each other, and just polished up the area behind the edges. I returned them to the shop after testing them. They were used to cut my hair before be given back to the owner. Everyone approved. If you have any questions a relatively inexperienced scissor guy can answer, pm me. I would suggest you to e mail or call to Ben for anything you're not comfortable with.

Thanks guys for the help, was starting to think I was the only person that got the scissor attachment. Will be quite awhile before I get to use now, too dang much yard work. Mrmnms, if I get stuck I might have to pm to get some suggestions.
Thanks
