    Default Hair getting caught in my clipper combs

    I've recently developed a problem with hair getting caught in my Clipper cliffs and gumming things up. It's crazy annoying and I'll not sure why it's happening. It did start right after I had my blades sharpened...the combs are metal, relatively new and a major name brand, though I can't recall which one. Any ideas on why and what I can do to solve this?

    Check your blade drive for wear and make sure all screws -blade latch and drive are tight. I usually change my blade drive when I have a major blade sharpening done.
    Old groomers never die, they just go at a slower clip.

    Groom on!!!

    You may be trying to pull the clipper through coat that is very dense with undercoat and going too fast. I know when I do cockers, I make sure I can get a regular wide tooth comb through before clipping with a snap on.

    Sometimes they just wear out. The plastic develops tiny cracks or rough edges trapping hair. I replace combs that do that. Usually works
