Question about Health & Beauty
I sent my blades off to be sharpened and cannot figure out how to put them back on - I know... DUH. They are the 8552 cordless rechargeable clipper
and the blades are attached with 2 screws.
It sounds like you may have a bent hinge which is what the blade slides onto. Please call Andis customer service at 1-800-558-9441 to speak with a customer service rep. They can give you instructions on where to purchase a new hinge or send or clippers in for repair.

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.

Check the tension of the hinge assembly which you slot your blades onto the hinge should be stiff (not moving by finger) also check the latch is connecting when the blades are fitted (check the blades wont pull off without depressing the latch. Its possible the blade drive may require replacing again they do not last long if your a busy groomer.
