  • I dropped my clippers

    I knocked my clippers off the counter and fling goes my 7F. the little rubber guide thingy even came off, so I guess that one will sit till I have enough to send off.

    Ooh, I hate that. I dropped my clippers with a seven on it once, and a tooth broke. I just threw it away. I have forties with teeth missing, but I keep them because I can use them under combs. A seven with a missing tooth though? no way

      I have done that before and put it back together and they work fine. I know you aren't supposed to but I have even taken them all apart for cleaning and I see no difference in my clips and the blades have never cut a dog. Does anyone else do this?

          Hi
          where about are you in Pennsylvania? I'm in Maryland near baltimore. I always see your messages and noticed that you have a Gryphon trailer. I'm looking into that now to find the right trailer. Just wondered how far you are from me. I hope your clippers survived!

            I wasn't aware that you are NOT supose to do it. I've taken mine off plenty of times while cleaning blades, and I've never had a problem.

              Glad I am not the only one! I had a teacher yell at me one time..... If it is lined up I don't see the big deal but maybe others on here know exactly why. I have heard they "set" them before but I don't think my blade guy does.

                I didn't drop mine, I threw them down!! I was so pizzed off!!! this woman dropped her dog off this am and told me she would be back to pick up at 3:00. She came in at 1, not ready, came back at 1:30 not ready, AGAIN at 2,, both times telling me she would be back at 3~~!!!!! soooooo, the last time,(I was extremely busy today) I slammed my clippers on the table, went and got her freakn dog, told her 10 more than what I had previously told her...she said "you told me if it was going to be 30.00?" I said, "yes, and you told me you would be here at 3! guess we both were wrong?!! rofl

                  You can slide the cutter out, clean, and slide it back in without a problem.

                  The biggest problem is if you take the spring off. When you put it back on, if the tension is too loose, your blade won't cut, and if you get it too tight it still won't cut, and it's hard on your clippers.

                    By spring do you mean the tension part on the underside? I didn't know that. I just figured that the screws were to just put it all together. I am not very mechanically inclined......

                      That would drive me nuts. People are sometimes so insecure when their dogs are 5 feet away from them. Sorry you had such a crazy day.

                          When putting the cutter back in use a flat screwdriver and gently lift up in the middle of the spring , not on the sides. Just lift enough to get the cutter started. If you pry up on the sides you can change the tension of the spring on one side and cause cutting problems. If you take the blade all the way apart, look carefully at where the cutter teeth line up then just put the blade back together the same way making sure the cutter tips are not over the comb tips.

                              We have a video on our website that will show you not only how to clean a blade, but how to move the cutter around so you can clean everything. Don't take blades apart to clean them. By doing this you can mess up the cutter setback, the tension, and the alignment. You may cut a dog if you put it back together wrong.
                              Just watch the video and you'll be fine!!!
