You can use your diamond toolholder from Eccentric Engineering as a shear tool as well, just turn the toolbit 90. See video below at around 4 minutes in.

I use a shear tool on the shaping machine as well, it leaves a superb finish.

That Diamond tool is really nice...

I went out to the shop and whipped up Ians' version with the round cutter. There was a lot less grinding to get the shape and I ground the face and end on the flat of the wheel so it would be easier to hone. I'm impressed. Thanks Ian!!
