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

Does someone know which # blade to use with the Oster, universal comb set for use with the Oster A5 turbo clipper?

Hi, as far as I know you're suppose to use a size 10 or 30 blade with any combs. I prefer to buy a longer blade like a size 4 rather than using the combs as I find the coat finish not great with the combs.

How to put together the blade

askmanny.jpg Instruction to assemble a clipper blade.Above picture Socket askmanny_0.jpg
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
Turn Socket & Spring Tension over Make sure Socket is slide back askmanny_4.jpg
This is Call a Blade Guide Make sure the blade Guide is on the Spring Tension askmanny_5.jpg
Make sure blade guide is on like picture above, Now place Socket & Spring aside askmanny_6.jpg
The comb Blade Place comb blade as picture above askmanny_8.jpg
Place cutter blade as picture above, making sure cutter blade smaller blade is on the comb blade Rail. askmanny_9.jpg
Hold the blade like this Finger on top and Thumb on the bottom askmanny_10.jpg
Turn blade over like this while still holding the blade together askmanny_11.jpg
Place screw as shown askmanny_12.jpg
Screw in the screw don't tighten leave loose. askmanny_13.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.

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.
