Using T-84 Andis blade for horses and cutting

Using Oster Golden A-5 cllipper

using T-84 Andis blade for horses and cutting leaves a "fork like" pattern. Is it the blade which did work initially and a new one now does the same, or something about head of clippers. Oster blade # 10 also rocks side to side as does the Andis blade..Should that be happening?

Check the two screws either side of the hinge assembly make sure they are tight, the problem appears to be with the clipper if all blades do the same.

How old is your clipper, Oster clippers need to be adjusted for more power and speed, also what clipper blade are you using to cut the horse hair and how long is the horse hair, Also the blade may not be sharp, some new blade are sharp maybe defective.

Oster Golden A5 Clippers will not cut


If the clippers are new, it is not likely that the problem is internal. Sometimes, when the blade is put on the clipper, it needs an extra little push to clip firmly behind the blade catch (you can hear a little click). Try that.

Run but will not cut


Are you sure you have Andis A5 or did you mean Oster A5 Clipper, if this clipper is A5 Clipper, You need to check the Lever for wear, The front of the Lever show wear on both side, Like white color and is not squad this Lever is worn. Need to replace. This Lever moves the blade side to side fully. if the Lever is worn the blade will not move fully side to side and the cutter blade the smaller blade will stay in the middle with hardly no travel to side to side and will not cut the hair even if you purchase new blades. Also I would like to mention if the Oster Locking Hinge is worn out and don't have the require tension to hold the blade in place the blade will not cut. How do you test the Oster Hinge on a Oster A5 Clipper,
(1) first close the hinge, in close potion with your finger nail try to open the Hinge, if the hinge slightly open or opens loose the Hinge is worn. if the Hinge is good it will not open or move and your nail may just brake your nail.
Many of my customers run into this type of problem, and the problem can be solve easily by checking these parts first.
One more item I would mention here if replace the A5 Hinge make sure you get the A5 Hinge not the Oster 76 Hinge they are driferrent, The A5 Hinge has on the back two wire's sticking out that fit on the Oster Latch for the A5 Hinge, the Oster 76 Hinge would not have these wire's on the back. I recommend replacing the Latch when you replace the Hinge. I hope this helps any body that have a A5 Oster clipper or A Oster 76 Clipper.

Andis Super 2 Speed AGC Clippers - The blades get very hot !


Buy some Kool Lube (Oster) or Andis Blade Coolant. Both are aerosols. Your 2-speed runs faster, so your blades heat up quicker. Check them often by touching them to your inner wrist, and spray them when they are hot. A bonus is that the sprays also disinfect! (FYI a hot blade can badly burn a pet, so make sure you keep them cool)

Newbie Clipper needing advice


This is from the Oster book:
Changing Blades
To Remove: IMPORTANT- stop motor; push latch with thumb while lifting blade away from clipper and slide off tongue.
To Replace: turn motor on; insert blade on tongue fully and then snap blade into place.

Note: if the hinge is flush against clipper, lift it up with a screwdriver.




From me - Never take your blades apart to clean them. You can slide them one side to the other to get the hair out. (One little hair, can stop them from cutting.) You need to buy a can of clipper blade cool from oster or andis both are good, and it really helps to lubricate the blade and keep them cool while clipping. If you live near a dog groomer, petsmart or something of the like. Ask them to show you how to remove the blade and I know they will be happy to show you. I tried to submit an image from the book, but I don't know if it will get here or not.

Oster Golden A5 Clippers


try running the blade for a bit keep lubricating in between the blades its important to oil your blades during and after use to avoid rust build up on the cutting surfaces. Also just make sure the blade is engaging onto the clippers ok.
