  • German red clipper blade question

    This year at Intergroom I purchased the German Red clipper. I haven't used it yet. I was wondering if anyone knows how to know that the blade is adjusted correctly. Is it just a hit and miss thing? I was told that when the blade isn't cutting right to just tighten it a little more.

    I just realized I never got a response from anyone? Is there no one that uses them?

          They are like the Big Oster Stewart clippers for adjusting. You turn the tension until you start to feel some resistance then go about a 1/4of a turn. Do a test cut if still not cutting go another 1/4 turn and repeat until blade cuts like you want. With the extra pressure you can put on these blades you need to oil the blades to make them last longer.

          The red clippers remind of the old A-2's in durability. I have read the maintenance procedures with the red clippers and it is almost identical to what you were supposed to do to the A-2's and A-5's, and it is recommended every week to keep the clippers running properly. Germans make great equipment and it will last if taken care of like they recommend.
