clipper blades
« on: June 10, 2012, 03:27:37 PM »
I have a set of andis 2 speed clippers. I was wondering what blade would be the best to purchase to shave my goats before the upcoming show?

Thanks

Start with a 4fc is what I would say. Do it 2 weeks out then freshen them back up.

I know this thread is a bit old, but personally I dont clip until I absolutely have to. The longer you wait to clip, the fresher their hide will stay. Clipping them 2 weeks out would let their hide dry out and conditioner and sprays can never put back in what that would take out. Nothins' better than a fresh hide.

For market animals I recommend a 7FC blade. It gives a smooth finish to their coat and gives them a neat and clean appearance

Keeping your blades clean and lubricated at all times will preserve the edge and reduce the amount of stress applied to the clipper.  All blade manufactures recommend that you clean your blades before and after each use.  They also recommend that you lubricate them before, during, and after each use.  We have a special method and blend of blade wash and blade oil.  Our website is www.switchblade1.com.

I am developing an educational program that covers clipper blade maintenance, effects of aerosol products on your blades and clippers, maintenance requirements on clippers, sharpening concepts pertaining to clipper blades, and much more.
