Question about Oster Golden A5 2-Speed Universal Motor Clipper 78005-140
I have an Oster Golden A5 Clipper that is almost 20 years old. I have had virtually no problems with it, but now when I attach the Size 10 blade it rattles, like it is loose. It only does that with that blade and it is the oldest one I have. If I hold it on the side it is quiet, but if I don't it rattles. I have taken it apart and re-greased it and everything looks good and the motor is strong. What are the two screw adjustments on the sides of the plastic housing for? I didn't know if these had anything to do with this problem. Do I just need to purchase a new #10 Blade?
Thank you for any help.
The screws on the side of the housing don't serve any purpose other than keeping the brush and spring in the clipper. You can send your blade in for realignment or call 800-830-3678(factory service) and they will help you with all your issues.

The two screws i believe are for your hinge assembly just make sure these are tight and the same with the two on the back of the blade.
I suspect the two ears on the clipper blade socket have moved apart allowing the blade to rattle on the clipper. You can buy the part separate if you are able to set your blades up yourself.
