We had Jim come and give us a little refurbishment demo a couple of years ago. I would rather see the exact problem with the shears before I give out advice so take this with a grain of salt. To get the blades closer to touch, he would get some sort bolt or pin that would center in the hole and support the rest of the shear underneath. He would then take a mallet to the shear to bend the blade end in with the hole being the point form which the shear bent towards itself. You could probably just clamp it down at that point really good too and give it some taps with the same effect. I hope that makes sense. It's a go slow operation. Take your time.
WWUD? Think for yourself.
