Question about Oster Golden A5 2-Speed Universal Motor Clipper 78005-140

1 Answer

My daughter is shearing our sheep with oster showmaster shears and they are now cutting very poorly, even though the blades are newly professionally sharpened and she has it on the fastest speed and good tension. There are ridges in the sheared wool and the sheep is highly uncomfortable because its wool is being pulled. We just had the unit serviced by an oster dealer because it stopped running. IThe motor runs now, but before we had the showmaster fixed, we never had the problem of pulling the ewe's wool and uneven shearing. Any ideas?

Sharpening your garden pruning shears


Every so often you will find that your gardening shears just aren't up to snuff. This will usually be most prominent when it get really difficult to cut through even the weakest of branches. Cleaning and sharpening your pruning shears is very simple and can be done in a matter of minutes.

To start you have to make sure that your shears are clean. Its not difficult to clean them, you can use a cleaning solution like scrubbing bubbles to get the dirt off, you just spray them and wipe them off with a soft cloth. If there is a lot of dirt or rust on the blade you might need to use a wire brush or a piece of steal wool to get them clean.

When you are satisfied with how clean the shears are you will need to get a sharpening stone. Carefully using your thumb on the convex blade (the big side of the shear) of the shears find the beveled edge. This will tell you the angle that you should be using to run the stone along the edge at.

When you have identified the angle that you're going to use to sharpen at, take the stone in your dominant hand and in the other hold the shears open. Applying a little bit of pressure rub the stone in small circles. You don't want to over do it, just a few times should be enough to get the blade sharp again.

The beveled edge should be the only blade that needs to be sharpened. On the flip side of the balde you shouldn't need to sharpen because it should be flat. In the case that you run your finger along the flat side and you find a bump you can use your stone to just smooth it out.

When you are satified with how smooth the blade sides are you should put a little bit of oil into the joint of the blades and open and close the blades a few times to get the oil into the gears. And finally using a cloth wipe the oil up and spread it over the blades. Wiping the oil over the blades will help to keep them from getting rusty.

To make sure that are ready to use you can test them on a piece of shrubbery or you can just head back out to the garden and get to work!

While mowing the drive belt tightner spring broke. I bought a replacement but the blades will not engage. The drive belt has been routed properly. it seems as though the blade's drive shaft will not spin.


Check and see if the shear pin has broken. If the pulleys spin but not the blades then the shear pin in the pulley or shaft has broken.

What is the difference between the angle cut blades and the shear cut blades on my bolt cutter?


angle cut blades have the cutter head angled at 25-35 degrees for easier insertion into tight spots. Shear cut blades are light normal scissor blades

Blades won't stay engaged in any length of grass


Sounds like a broken shear pin in the drive pulley. Check the belts and see if they are slipping. Broken shear pin will not let the blades spin under pressure. .

Check shear pins in the blades . Tyr turning by hand with power shut off. If you can turn by hand then I am sure the shear pins are broken. Check drive belts as well.

Difficulty shaving Spanish Water Dog


The biggest issue with clipping animals (except sheep which use completely different clippers) is that once you have sharpened blades, you need to go slow and keep then blades oiled and cooled. The KOOL spray by oster works great and the clippers you are using are a good reliable brand and model. When clipping my cocker/schnauzer cross, I have a 1/2 inch guard on it (have to use a 30 or 40 blade with the guards) and it takes about an hour. I stop every 10 minutes or so to let them cool down, spray and oil them.

Blade doesn't turn with motor


Hi Dean,

I'm not aware of a shear pin, but it makes sense that there would be one. It's not something you look for unless, well, it shears.

It would also make sense that it would be located on the drive train.

I'd take off the guard and blade, then inspect the drive wheel mount to the motor. Remember, if it turns out to be a shear pin, you're also looking for the reason it sheared.

Make sure the other wheel spins freely. Nothing is binding. that sort of thing.

Best regards
Mike
