    Hmmm Pink Best place to buy clipper blades

    I've been getting frustrated with PetEdge not having the blades I need in stock, especially the Wahl 5-in-1s. Does anyone have any suggestions on other places to buy from that have good customer service and prices?

    Loads of vendors to buy from. I like King Wholesale. Been using them for years. Yes, Pet Edge had to back order 2 items that I ordered recently. (Didn't use King because they didn't carry something I wanted).
    Old groomers never die, they just go at a slower clip.

    Groom on!!!

    and don't discount Amazon. I recently stocked up on 5n1's for 16 dollars each! I just price shop. Whoever gives me the best deal, gets my money.

    ^^^ THIS!! Especially if you have prime. Free 2 day shipping always and they almost always have what you need in stock for a competitive price.

    Good to know info. I am a price shopper too. I end up buying at Ryans, Kings, PetEdge or Groomers Choice the most, but an occasional prime which I just joined.

    There is another brand of clipper blade that hasnt been discussed...Furzone blades.

    To me they are the best blades made today, in 37 years of grooming Ive used every brand out there made today and they all dont hold an edge long. Why? Simple. They are made of softer metal than they were in the 90's. If you have blades from the big three that has big numbers on the back, those blades are soft, 54 Rockwell.

    Furzones are 62 Rockwell and hold and edge longer, and cut smoother than any blade today. Untill you try one, you will never know. Dont believe the words of someone else, you be the judge. They are premium blades made from 440C stainless steel. If you want a deal or cheap, these arent the blades for you. I had a die hard Buttercut user tell me she wouldnt use any other blade other than Buttercut. She also said she used every blade out there and Buttercuts were superior to everything else. I agreed with her, but I also mentioned she never tried a Furzone blade either. I sent her a 7F to try and said if she didnt like it to throw it away, she owed me nothing. Three weeks later she bought 11 more Furzones and paid for the 7F I sent her.

    Here is a link to Furzone sales, Take a look.

    I purchased some Furzone Blades from Jeff a few weeks ago and they are Awesome!!!! The cut is clean and they are by far the best blades I've ever used. Highly recommend!

    The only thing I don't like about furzone is that they don't work on my andis Excell 5 speed. Nor do Oster skip blades. I have to use a two speed clipper which I'm not fond of.

    You are putting the blade on your Andis properly. I know you been putting blades on your 5 speed forever, but you have to follow the procedure in your manual. First, you cant "slap"blades on without raising the latch, if you do most blades with good hardware wont go on (ie Furzone, Osters Skips). You have to raise the latch to put a blade on, and raise the latch to take it off. Otherwise you could tip the socket forward, or bend your hinge.

    One time when I was mobile I had just finished a shop and headed for the next one. My phone rang and it was the groomer where I was just at. She said" I cant get any of the blades you just sharpened to go on my clipper". I asked if she was slapping the blades on the hinge or raising the latch? She said "Im raising the latch, I know how to put a blade on a clipper. Been grooming over 20 years" So I went back there.

    When I got back there she started to show me how the blades didnt go on, in doing so I noticed she wasnt raising the latch. So, right in front of her, I put 18 blades on her clipper and showed they were locked on by pressing forward on the blade. They were locked on and running smooth. She asked how come they didnt go on for her and they did me. I said Im a groomer, and I know how to put a blade on a clipper. ( it was a smart ass answer, but it was her fault I had to go back, not mine)

    The reason you cant slap a blade on an Andis clipper is because the latch doesnt raise by its self. If you dont raise it, that hook will hit in the middle of the top of your socket and can either tip it forward, or it may move the latch enough to where it will go on. In your case Ill bet you tried to slap those blade on so many times the top of that socket is tipped forward in which case it may never go on until you fix the socket.

    The Furzone blades will go on any clipper. I have two Excel 5 speeds running in my shop and they both use Furzone blades all day long. There is a video on my website called "How to put a blade on an Andis clipper" I made this video because so many groomers were slapping blades on and bending the sockets and breaking the latch hooks, and also bending the hinges. It might be worth your while to check it out so you can properly put a blade on your Excel and enjoy the benefits of the best blade made today. Furzone Premium Blades.

    Thanks
