Just wondering if anyone admits to doing this.......
« on: May 09, 2010, 12:27:08 PM »
Does anyone ever cut "human hair" with their cattle fitting clippers?
I have three sons and cut their hair all the time. My wife or my oldest son cut what little hair I have with mine.
I use an Andis Power Groom. The most common blade I use is a 5/8th. I also use a 3/4, 4FC(9.5mm) & 5FC (6.3mm) to get a "tapered" look.
I have used a  Super Blocking blade before to give one boy a "flat top". It does a great job, but as we know the margin for error is slim.
I would be interested in knowing if other members also give "haircuts" and if so, what equipment they use?

I have been threatening for years but have had no tackers.

I used to cut my son's hair with them.  Once in a while I'd nick his ear, which he wasn't happy about.  But that didn't stop him from asking me to cut it again.

I gave a kid a cut with them a few years ago at fair.   When my kids were younger they used to let me but now they won't.

Yep, used them to buzz it off myself more than once.

I let a steer jock cut my hair the last weekend of my freshman year at A&M.  I knew he was good with a set of clippers on cattle and it would save me about $10.

My mother wouldn't let me go to church until I got it fixed by a real barber.

Yeah, I kept my head shaved for a few months during a summer job.  Had to wear a hard hat and being "bald". It was helpful, BUT we on a little float trip and "somehow" I lost my hat, then a dew rag and my head turned shades of red that it, hopefully, will never be again.  Couldnt keep up the shaved head look and with the combination of the hair growing and the skin peeling........ I was miserable.
