Question about Oster Golden A5 1-Speed Universal Motor Clipper 78005-010

Open Question

Oster Turbo A5 2 Speed. My blades wobble when I turn my clipper on. I took the top and bottom blades off to have them sharpened. Now, after putting the 2 blades together, tightening the 2 screws, the blades wobble, not a big wobble just a medium wobble. I can't figure out what I've done wrong.

SOURCE: blade installation

i had the same problem and i fixed mine ( it is not broken) ... the tongue is the thing that is silver and has grooves that face upward, the tongue should be up compared to pressed against the shave, take a small screw driver or a kitchen knife and get under the tongue and lift it up, once this is done you need to slide it on the blades and snap it down, i found that i did not need to have the clippers on to put it back on.... at first i got confused in thinking that the tongue was the red thing at the top, and in actuality this is the thing that moves the blades to clip.... i hope this helps, once you get the tongue up the blades are on in 10 seconds...

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.

Hi A5 blades are not made to be unscrewed. They are snap on blades. You can call 800-830-3678 which is Oster Direct consumer service. They will walk you though the process or you can send them back to Oster and they will put them back together and realign them for you. Hope that helps.

How do I change the blade?


There is a small button at the bottom edge of the blade, push it in and at the same time push the blade teeth away from the clipper. The blade will hinge away from the clipper, you then lift the blade up off the tongue. When fitting another blade pop it onto the tongue, turn the clipper on and snap the blade shut.

The brand new gear lever on my oster a5 isnt moving the clipper blade


make sure the blade is clicked into place fully, secondly check to see if the blade is sitting further away from the clipper than usual, it could also be a stripped gear inside the clipper does the lever move when the blade is engaged?

Oster A5 clippers work briefly then "pull" hair


Lever arm worn, blade blunt, or loss of movement inside the gearbox. It is possible to have a 'bad' sharpen.

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 do you put on a blade when you took it off?


There is a picture of an oster clipper in the picture so I assume you are talking about an A5 style blade/clipper. Hold the clipper with the hinge facing you, if the hinge is open, then turn the blade so the blade number is facing up and slide it onto the open hinge, start the clipper and push the blade down to shut it. If the hinge is not open, prize it open with a flat head screwdriver. www.sheaeaseltd.com

Oster clippers blade


John! No Problem!
First put the bigger of the two blades witht the size/number facing down, put the cutter on top. (with the side with the flat side of the teeth facing down) Then put the tongue guide inside the tension spring, make sure the tension spring rail is on the tension rail and place them on top of the cutter. To see which bits these are go to: http://www.sheareaseltd.com/clipper-blade-sharpening/clipper-blades-the-parts
This picture whows the front and back, it differs slightly from your blade, but its same meat different gravy!

Hold all this together with your finger and thumb, flip it over and scre the whole lot together!

My Golden A5 clippers won't shave a knowlegable dog groomer friend of mine said the blade seems sprung from the housing it doesn't fit snug against the body of the clipper is there an adjustment I can...


it seem the hinge on your clipper is worn out, here how you can check it, place blade on with the clipper off tap the blade forward if the blade pop,s open the hinge is worn out, you need to replace it, Now on the cutting part of the blade when was the last time you had your blade sharpen. if it been a while or you can not remember it's time to have it sharpen by a professional.

Replacing blades on Oster A5


A5 blades are not made to be unscrewed. Once they are sharpened they are aligned and when you unscrew them they will need to be realigned again. You can call factory service 800-830-3678 if you have any questions. Please just in the future always use the snap on/off method.
