Question about Wahl 8554 Hair Trimmer

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

Is there any way to adjust for closeness other than with plastic combs?

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

Spring Tension askmanny_1.jpg
Place Socket on Spring Tension like this askmanny_2.jpg
Slide Socket back as shown in picture askmanny_3.jpg

Now that you have the 2 screw in and not tight place the blade like this You need to hold the blade with one hand and with your Philips screw driver tap the cutter blade back lightly until the cutter teeth are 2/32 back from the comb blade. askmanny_14.jpg
the cutter blade which is the smaller blade is back 2/32 from the comb blade which is the bigger blade. When this is done by holding the blade together with your finger & Thumb askmanny_15.jpg
Tighten the 2 screws tight askmanny_16.jpg
Your blade should look like this when done correctly askmanny_17.jpg
We hope this was helpful when assembling a clipper blade.

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 need a clipper guide comb for an Oster model 606B hair trimmer. Where can I buy one?


Buy one on e-bay. I have the same clipper and needed the guide combs, so I went out on a limb and bought the Oster combs that fit the 76 models. It says "universal" on them, and they fit my old 606B perfectly!

I have the alpha 8554. I dont like the plastic combs, is that the only way to adjust closeness?


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.

Trimmer problem


does the trimmer blade move side to side? there's a fixed comb and a movable comb. the movable comb is much like a hedge trimmer. a cutter moving right next to a fixed guide comb. its supposed to shear off hair with every side to side motion. if its not moving it ain't cutting. it operates off the electromagnet inside the unit. broken linkage will cause the problem.
