No . The blades are sharpened by grinding away the base of the wear until the edges between the teeth are sharp. It also necessary for the tension between the cutting blades is correct other wise the cutting teeth ride up over the hair and will not cut. Have a person who does sharpening of knives ,scissors and blades sharpen the clippers for you as the machine will get it right.

SOURCE: how to sharpen oster clipper

In order to sharpen these blades you must first dis-assemble them (paying particular attention to the way everything fits together), Next you need to get a piece of glass or something as flat as possible and tape a sheet of 180 grit emery paper with the rough side up. Then you put the upper blade on the emery paper wih the flat side down and stroke it back and forth in a straight line at least 100 strokes each way. Turn the blade over and examine the surface with a magnifying lens to see if you have honed the blade flat all the way across. Next turn the blade 90 degrees and again stroke the blade back and forth in a straight line. Turn the blade over and examine again to see if you have removed all the first series of strokes and the new set is flat from edge to edge. If so then put that blade aside and do the same thing to the lower blade until it is flat across and up and down. After reaching this stage you need to remove the 180 grit paper and go up to 230 grit paper and repeat the whole process. After completing the second stage you progress to 400 grit paper and repeat once again..
Make sure you keep the blades straight so the hone marks are up and down and from side to side and you should have an almost razor sharp cutting tool. Also DO NOT USE SAND PAPER only emery paper or cloth. I know this sounds like a lot of work but after you've done it a couple of times you can whip out a blade in about 20 minutes.

SOURCE: i need to know the right angle to sharpen my chainsaw

If your saw still has the original bar and chain, it was supplied with a .325" pitch chain and you'll need a 3/8" round file with a sharpening guide to properly sharpen it.

Here's a link to the Husqvarna site to the Rancher 455 models so you can select the correct manual to download, that matches your particular saw, based on the year of manufacture, etc.

There is some excellent information about maintaining your saw, along with a really good guide with step-by-step instructions for proper sharpening.

http://www.husqvarna.com/us/homeowner/support/download-manuals/?query=455&types=O

If you're having trouble figuring out the right manual for your saw, use the online Customer Support page and they'll reply.

Hope you find this Very Helpful - Best regards!

SOURCE: ineed to sharpen my wood chipper blades on my

It takes me about 5 minutes to Remove, Sharpen, and Re-install my chipper blade for my Bolens mc2500. First, If your using a screen or rollers in the discharge, then remove them. Look underneath, and you will see the thick flywheel. Make sure the spark pug wire is disconnected, then slowly turn the flywheel by hand until you see the two hex head bolts that hold the chipper blade to the flywheel. Also remember which way you take it off, so it goes back together the same way. using an open end or combination wrench remove the two hex bolts. Now to sharpen, I use a medium/ coarse honing tool made for lawnmower blades. I clamp the blade to the top edge of my Bolens with a pair of visegrips, then a little oil, and the sharpening tool, and I'm done sharpening in about 2 minutes, and then re-installing, reversing the removel process. I hope this helps.

Clippers not cutting


It is not unknown for a sharpen to be no good, anyone can turn out a bad sharpen. Look for correct blade assembly, check that there is sufficient pressure holding the blades together, check there is no missing stroke. Check the blade is secure and not wobbling. If the above are OK I would buy a new blade. You could also return the blade with the clipper for the sharpener to test for themselves.

Heiniger clippers won't clip


It's likely the tension nut or screw needs to be tightened a little more providing the drive block is in place and the blades have been put on correctly.

You shouldn't need to buy new blades even when they go blunt just send them to a professional sharpener

I have just had all the blades sharpened for my clippers but they won't cut my dog's fur. Never had a problem before. Can you please help?


It is common to that a Blade Sharpening Service return your blades just as blunt as before, or even worse.
I advise that you try a new Blade Sharpening Service; trying out only a couple blades to begin with.
I recommend a mobile/on-site sharpening service.

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!

Can i sharpen my electic trimmers using sandpaper


Things You'll Need: Three-sided blade sharpener (coarse, medium, fine) Small flat head screwdriver step 1 Using the flat head screwdriver, unscrew the trimmer blades and remove them carefully. Wipe off any oil, grime or dirt that has built up on them as this may make it more difficult to handle and keep them in place during the manual portion of the sharpening process. Step 2 Separate the blades and re-apply only the moving blade to the tension spring. Then apply the moving blade to sharpener surface and turn the clippers or trimmers on. Hold the moving blade on the surface of the sharpener and apply light pressure while moving the blade back and forth for one to two minutes. You can also lay the blade on the sharpener first, then put the trimmer tension spring directly on the blade. Step 3 Turn off the clippers and remove the moving blade. It should look shiny and feel sharper. Step 4 Remove the guide from the guide blade by unscrewing it using the flat head screwdriver. Place the guide blade on the sharpening surface and manually run it back and forth for about one or two minutes or until it's been sharpened to your satisfaction. Screw the guide back onto the guide blade while being careful to readjust it before you tighten the screws. Step 5 Screw all the blades back on the trimmers and power them on to make sure they've been fitted correctly. Test them on your own hair to make sure they've been sharpened correctly and are set to the desired depth. Ads by Google Best Knife Sharpener Sharpen like the pros. Complete kit w/ 1x30 belt sander.

Plug it in. Trim it up. Depend on STIHL Electric Trimmers. www.STIHLdealers.com Tips & Warnings Which surface you choose, whether coarse, medium or fine, depends on how dull your blades are and how sharp you want to make them. If they are very dull, you will want to start with the coarse or medium side of the sharpener. If they just need a small amount of sharpening, use the fine side. If you've never sharpened electric trimmers before, you may want to visually observe and feel the sharpness of the blades with your fingers before you start to sharpen it. It may be hard to tell if the blades are sharp enough if you don't feel them just before you apply them to the sharpening surface.

Clipper blade sharpeners are availale but the cost of these typically start at about $300 and go as high as several thousand dollars. This makes it unaffordable for home use.
For affordable, professional clipper blade sharpening, I suggest you contact the folks at clipperparts.com

Your clipper moves at just one speed. There is no way to 'speed it up' if it is working correctly.
