Clippers and Blades

Big Admin May 5, 2018 31

I just wanted to show you what kind of clippers I use and a little bit about blades. I hope this helps some of you. The clippers can run about $150.00 and the blades start at about $20 and…

    I would like to know if the oil used on the clipper is toxic to a dog and also do you clip a dog before or after a bath. And also the blade on my Andis clipper gets very hot with in about a minute is this normal? Thank you.

    The oil used on the clipper comes with the clipper and the clippers are made for dogs so no it should not be toxic to the dog. I would keep it out of their reach and also they could have an allergic reaction I'm sure… just try to wipe all the excess off before using the blade again. I will do both clip before and after bath usually. It is normal for a blade to get hot, but within a minute is telling me maybe you need to replace the "blade drive" on your clipper.

    The blade oil that comes with the purchase of clippers is just your standard mineral oil. The problem with this oil is that it is too light and will easily run off the blade and it does not handle the amount of load that builds on the clipper. The Speedy Blade Oil addresses these issues.

    If your clippers are running hot, you have a electrical issue. It could be the armature (motor), switch, or you could have a crack in the magnetic field that houses your armature. If your blades are getting hot quickly, the blade drive could be making contact to the comb section which will cause your blades to heat up quickly or you may just need to apply more oil to your blades.

    Thank you for taking the time to share your video!  I have been using combs but I have some blades and didn't know how to use them, but I think next time I clip my shih tzu I will try the blades instead as the combs pull his hair.

    Hi, maybe I missed it, but did you say what size blade you use to get the 'teddy bear' look on the body?  I always thought it had something to do with the 'clip on combs', but it looks more like you use a certain type of bade.  I have a shihtzu.  Thanks for replying.

    Thank you so much for the informative video! I want to try to groom my dog (a Westie) myself instead of taking him to a professional since our last experience was unfortunately a bad one. I have a question: Should I get the #4 or the #4FC  if my dog's coat is a little rough? He hasn't been groomed in over a year. I'm just a bit confused – does the "fine cut" refer to how I want the dog's coat to be afterwards? Or if the dog's hair is fine/thin to begin with?

    Thanks so much for showing the different blades. Just getting ready to do my first cuts on my dogs. I just purchase the and is agc2 pro clip clippers. It came with a 10 blade and I also got a 5fc blade. This really helped me to understand what the different blades are for. 🙂

    This is so helpful! After burning out numerous regular clippers, I bought Andis.

    Thanks, your is the most compete about blades. I have a JIt shu with very matted hair, I bought several cheap Wahl clippers , after few times they stop working. I wonder whether because I do not have a correct type of blades. Is it correct?
    How do you sharpen your blades if they don't cut ?

    that last blade could you use that for feet.

  24. robert S October 22, 2016 at 4:59 am - Reply

    the bottom of the feet is what I meant I am using a Andis AGC clipper with a number 10 blade I have decided to groom my dog myself instead of paying 100.00 to get him groomed at PetSmart every three to four months he is a poodle/havanese  mix  but my blade gets really hot after 6 minutes so I have to stop and let it cool off so I am thinking about getting a ceramic blade I was told they stay cooler longer is that true.

    This video has been extremely helpful to me as it's very hard to get groomers to share their info. I'd like to start going my lhasa apsos myself and i'm totally baffled by the blades and all the numbers on them too. What blades would you recommend i get i don't like them totally scalped but i like them short and neat.

    Great review of blades. Our westy has bad skin, when not on antibiotics. Would a 4f be better then her normal 7f? We cut our cavalier with 7f. Thank you
