No, the type of blade you have can be adjusted or change to a closer type blade. This blade is inter-changeable but you need a special tool to restt the blade or change the blade for the type of hair cutting you want.

Anyone got good advice how I can avoid getting a hair iron burn?


Here's a tip that I find really helpful - stick a thin plastic comb between your scalp and the curling iron. It will stop the iron from getting too close to the scalp.

The clippers are back together but are cutting the skin and still dont sound right did i put them together right.


Did you remove the comb and blade only? If so, the comb (the part that doesn't move and is closest to the skin) should extend beyond the reach of the blade (the part that does move left and right). Nicking is sometimes caused by excessive pressure against the skin. A properly adjusted blade will resemble someone with an underbite (extended lower jar) with the comb part extending beyond the blade.

Most clippers have a clatter adjustment screw. Turn this until the clipper clatters (buzzes really loud) and then adjust it back until the clatter stops (but not too far or you will lose power and the blade will stall or cut slowly). Be sure to oil the blades. Mineral oil (from a drugstore) will do if you can't get shaver oil.

Good luck from Detroit, MI

How to position the clipper blade while u sharpening?


Hi!
I'm not sure about the nature of you question. Firstly if you mean, position the comb (with the adjusting lever on your clipper because your blades wont work, then:)
1.
If you move the comb downwards using the lever on the side of your clipper you will get a shorter cut, if you move it forward you will get a slightly longer cut. If your clipper makes a horrible noise, I believe there is a plastic adjuster on the side that you adjust with a flat head screwdriver. This adjusts the springs inside the clipper which effects how central the cutter moves from side to side. Adjust this while the clipper is running. You want your blades to be as central as posssible. If they still do not work, you may need your blades sharpened. This costs £5.90 incl. VAT & Postage www.sheareaseltd.com You could send your clipper to them as well and ask them to re align your blades after sharpening and they'll just charge the extra postage. (extra £5)
Hope this helps!
2.
If you mean how to hold the clipper with the blade relative to what you are clipping. You need to hold the clipper so the teeth are not pointing into your project, but not pointing away from it either. Keep the comb parallel to your project. With human hair, cut against the grain, with an animal cut with the grain!
Hope This Helps!

I don't care for the plastic comb guides on the 8554


Only by extending the blade with the lever at the side, the only other thing is to use a large headed regular comb and gold it away from the scalp to the length that you desire then use the clipper to cut off the hair. I am a hairdresser and very rarely use the providede attachments

Q. How do I align my blades? faq1.jpg A. ALIGNING BLADES
  1. The bottom blade holes are larger than the shanks of the blade screws. When the blade screws are loosened the bottom blade can be aligned with the top blade. Tighten the screws after the blsde is aligned and ensure that they are kept tight.
  2. The end of the top blade teeth should be aligned 1/32" to 1/16"(.79mm to 1.59m") back from and parallel to the bottom blade. It is important to align your blade properly to ensure that the clipper does not cut too close and to prevent the moving cutter from touching the skin.
  3. faq2.jpgThe extreme left hand tooth of the top blade must be covering or be to the left of the first small tooth of the bottom blade.
  4. The extreme right hand tooth of the top blade must be touching the big tooth of the bottom blade.

Q. My clipper/trimmer is making a loud "clunking" sound, is it broken? A. No, the unit is not broken. Rather, it is not properly tuned and as such it is not operating at maximum power. To adjust power (tune), turn the power screw in a clockwise direction until you hear a noise. Then, slowly turn the power screw out (counter-clockwise) until the noise stops. This is maximum power.
