  • It chews them up because the fade masters aren’t meant to be used with guards if you want to use guard get the improved masters those don’t chew the guards
  • I’m not using the Fade Master. I’m using the Improved Andis Master. It does that when ever you adjust them to 000. I adjust them that close to get a crisper cut, but having them so close causes them to chew guards.
  • alsmillions i use to have the same trouble with my guards and master that’s why i started using the andis bgrc with the blades i dont know u use those but i like them but the reason i got them was cause i was tired of buying guards all the time i have been using the andis guard and it still does it with the 1/16. anyways keep posting ur video i like watching them.
  • I use blades to, but some cuts like that Martin Lawrence fade I did require fine tuning only a clipper and a guard can provide. It can be done, it just take a lot of work to do it.
  • that makes sence,.

  • Clippers power in Japan?
    I suggest you go to Akihabara and find a shop that specializes in power conditioners and such, and see if you can get some expert advice. My guess is that it is an issue with frequency, rather than voltage, thus transformers do not not help.

    where do you live? andis brand from a pet store and i paid $30.00 for them.
  • What are the best clippers for grooming a dog (maltese poodle mix)?
    Oster or Andis are both good brands, as is Wahl. I think Oster is easier (cheaper) to get blades for. You will need a #10 blade, and maybe a #30- if you plan on shaving the face/feet/tail like a poodle, this is generally done with either a 10 or 30. (the larger the number, the closer the blade cuts.) If you want to keep the body close, then I would look at a #7f or a #4- You can buy the guide combs that go over the clipppers, but they cut unevenly, and can get tangled in the hair. If the dog has lots of mats now, I would look at trying to cut with scissors first, as the mats are hard to get out with the clippers. When using the #10 or #30 blade, you need to be careful, because the blade will get hot and can burn the skin. Make sure you check regularly. Especially if your dog is white, with pink skin, it’s very sensitive. I would recommend getting 2 blades, and then you can change them out without having to stop and let the blades cool down.

    Also, take your time. Maybe even do short sessions with your baby until she gets used to being groomed. She will have to endure this for the rest of her time. If you make it a positive experience, then it will be easier on both of you then having to fight her every time!

    Good luck! I admire you for taking on the duty of grooming your new baby. You will be surprised at how much bonding this will afford the two of you!

  • What are the best clippers for grooming a dog (maltese poodle mix)?
    Buy really good ones. I bought Andis and spent probably $200 including two blades, then another $100 on scissors and then bought a table….probably $500 minumum. At $50 a grooming session I would recoup the cost in 10 visits. I can’t work that clippers for sh** and now I take my dog in to be clipped, however with practice you can learn. I suggest Andis and so did the groomer.

    for the price of a pair of clippers you could pay some one to groom the dog in the UK ihave some wahl clippers they were 60 pounds i groom my dogs myself,it would cost less than that to pay some one to do it and i would not recommend clipping a dog your self if you have never done so before

    @BigBadBaddyBad I answered that before here. You don’t want your metal Andis teeth grinding against the metal guard teeth. It will wear your Andis clipper teeth down. Then you’ll have to buy a new blade. Click on the link above to see the new Andis magnetic guards that work perfectly with the Andis Master.

    why not use metal guards.

  3. Alophre on August 13, 2010 at 3:48 pm

    I love the Masters too,but the Magic Clips are really good clippers I think every barber should have both pair of clippers.

  5. laclipperrepair on August 13, 2010 at 5:17 pm

    People talking about the guards, on well, these barbers should not need guards. It is cheating, way too easy. Seen some stylists putting and leaving their guards in the Barbercide, this is not good for the guards, they schrink.

    Both Andis Master and Wahl Magic are using magnetic motor.

  6. boy8v on August 13, 2010 at 5:35 pm

    yup im buying a wahl magic

  7. kenthebarber on August 13, 2010 at 5:37 pm

    true that i have went through so many of the red gaurds and actually they are so tight you can barely keep them good for only a few cuts. its worse if you got the masters adjusted

    Use the Andis Magnetic guards. They don’t get ate up. Check out the video response above for more info.

    I picked up the Masters a month ago and everytime i cut my hair the guards are done. Is there any guard i can use besides the speeds.

  10. alsmillions on August 13, 2010 at 6:25 pm

    @gottispm13 You can’t be serious. Look at the above video. Keep up!

  11. gottispm13 on August 13, 2010 at 6:54 pm

    you can clearly buy da specially made andis master plastic guards that fit on perfect and the teeth dont eat away the gaurd and they come with the numbers 0, 1, 2, 3, 4 ,6 ,and 8 which is perfect for all haircuts and there only about 12 bucks

  12. trickerboi on August 13, 2010 at 7:01 pm

    you can do more with the andis master, the wahl magic clipper is better as a back up or a clipper to help clean up any rough spots on a fade, it’s more ideal for short tight cuts

  13. punchypooh on August 13, 2010 at 7:37 pm

    How does the wahl magic clipper match up against Andis Master? I was thinking about buying a set but I need a set that is going to last.

  14. MrBarber44 on August 13, 2010 at 8:33 pm

    whr can i get da clipper keeper?

  15. alsmillions on August 13, 2010 at 9:01 pm

    I guess you didn’t listen to the video. Metal guards grind against the teeth on the master. If that happens your clippers will no longer be sharp.

  16. mazzter744 on August 13, 2010 at 9:12 pm

    you need to get some metal guards

  17. alsmillions on August 13, 2010 at 9:46 pm

    @mrstlouis If your Andis is adjusted with the teeth zeroed out, you will have a problem with the blade teeth rubbing against the metal guards.

  18. mrstlouis on August 13, 2010 at 10:46 pm

    a al, wat if i tried using one of those steel metal guards or would that mess up my andis masters

  19. xfya on August 13, 2010 at 10:47 pm

    can i cut my own hair using the wahl clippers and do i have to buy any additional guards? i usually have a skin fade or bald taper??

  20. trickerboi on August 13, 2010 at 10:52 pm

    hey al, have those wahl magic clips given u similar problems to the wahl balding clippers far as snaggin certain customers hair???they have with me, that’s why i just use them to clean up fades and take out the line made from my balding clipper/trimmer

  21. cleankutz1 on August 13, 2010 at 11:49 pm

    that makes sence,.

  22. alsmillions on August 13, 2010 at 11:50 pm

    I use blades to, but some cuts like that Martin Lawrence fade I did require fine tuning only a clipper and a guard can provide. It can be done, it just take a lot of work to do it.
