Facts about Blades & Cutting
The blades are the single most important part of this clipper.
Blades do not become dulled from cutting hair. They are dulled by the abrasive particles on the hair (dirt, sand, etc).
Clipper blades should be oiled before, during, and after clipping: most clipper problems are due to a lack of oil to lubricate and cool.
Blades will not cut if abrasive particles are picked up and carried by the oil film between the blades. These particles tend to hold the blades apart and cause chewing and pulling instead of clean cutting.
Oiling the blades performs two, distinct functions: 1) provides low friction, very thin film lubricant between the cutting blades so that they can take a full cutting stroke without becoming hot from frictional heat, and 2) flushes away abrasive particles and hairs from between the blades.
NOTE: If you cut into dirt, immediately wash the blades with oil to flush it out. Working the tapering lever back and forth will assist in removing the dirt particles.
Operating your Wahl Clipper
By following these simple steps, your Wahl quality Pet Clipper will provide years of satisfactory service.
Oil - for maximum efficiency, your clipper blades must be oiled with each haircut. Place one or two drops of oil on blades while clipper is running. If clipper is brand new or hasn't been used, your clipper blades are dry. They will require oiling. Use only Wahl Clipper Oil.
Power Screw - (Not found on all models of Wahl Clippers) If your clipper has a power screw, it has been adjusted for peak efficiency before leaving the factory. However, if voltage in your home is low, you may need to readjust it. To adjust the power screw, use a screwdriver or a thin coin to turn the power screw out (counterclockwise), just until noise stops. This is the maximum power setting.
Blades- Do not try to sharpen the clipper blades. Once they become dull, special equipment is needed to re-sharpen the blades. Also, never wash the blades in water. When the blades do not cut, they may need oiling or re-sharpening. If you determine the blades need re-sharpening, you can return them to Wahl Clipper Corp. for re-sharpening.
Blade Alignment -Blades must be realigned if they have been removed for cleaning or replacement. If your clipper has a taper lever, position the taper lever in the close-cut position. End of top blade teeth should be approximately 1/32" back from bottom blade.
This is important so that the clipper does not cut too close or allow the moving cutter to touch the skin.
Extreme left-hand tooth to top blade must be covering or to the left of the first small tooth of bottom blade.
Extreme right-hand tooth of top blade must be touching the big tooth on the bottom blade.
If blade alignment is incorrect, add a few drops of oil to the blades, turn clipper ON for a few moments, then turn OFF and unplug. Loosen screws and adjust. Tighten screws after blades are aligned.
Taper Level- Some Wahl Clippers are equipped with an adjustable taper lever. The taper lever is conveniently located near your thumb (if you're right handed), so it can easily be adjusted while the clipper is in your hand. The taper lever adds versatility to your clipper by allowing you to gradually change the closeness of your cut without a guide comb. When the lever is in the uppermost position, pushing the lever downward gradually increases the cutting length. In its lowest position, the taper lever will leave the hair approximately the same length as the 1/8" guide comb.
The taper lever will also extend the use of your blades since a different cutting edge is used in each setting. In addition, if extremely heavy haircutting has jammed the blades, it will help you remove hair that has become wedged between the two blades without removing the blades. While the clipper is running, rapidly move the lever from "close cut" to "longer cut" a couple of times. Doing this each time you've finished using your clipper will help keep the blades clear of cut hair. If your clipper stops cutting and this does not help, your cutting blades may be dull. Either replace them or return them to Wahl for sharpening.
Clipper Care and Service
To clean the unit, use either a clean, dry, or dampened cloth. Do not use benzene or thinner to clean the unit.
Do not store the clipper in a wet or moist environment.
Do not touch any of the internal mechanisms. If the unit should need repair, do not repair it yourself.
When stored, make sure cord is not nicked, twisted, or obstructed. It should be coiled and the unit placed in a dry place, away from children.
Only use the specified electric power source shown on the rating plate.
The cutting blades furnished with Wahl Pet Clippers are made of a special high carbon steel scientifically heat treated for correct hardness. Years of experience have created a special process for grinding these blades to a super sharpness.
Be careful not to drop your clipper or to nick the blades.
Always replace the blade guard when the clipper is not in use. This helps prevent accidental damage and blade dulling.
Periodically dip the teeth of the blade in a shallow pan of Wahl Clipper Oil (with clipper running) to flush out dirt and hair.
Run the clipper through the hair only as fast as it is able to completely cut. Operating it too fast wedges hair clippings between the blades and they become unable to cut properly. Do not cut wet hair.
Avoid pressing the blades strongly against the skin, being especially careful around the ears.
Keep your clipper blades sharp. Clip only clean animals. Foreign particles are the major cause of dull blades.
Sharp clipper blades cut better and faster.
New replacement blades are available from your Wahl products outlet. It is recommended that you order an extra blade as a spare so that you will always have a sharp clipper blade on hand.
