We have been busy updating the systems our website runs on, the majority of which is now complete. As part of the update we have changed the layout from a list to a grid, which should allow easier viewing of the products. At present we are working through updating pictures and descriptions to allow you a better view of the products. Hope you like these change.
This update will allow us to easier alter/implement new features, such as alternative payment methods and improved shipping options. We are currently investigating what options are most viable in these areas.
I have had trouble issuing this months Newsletter, which is why it is in this new format, if you did receive our Newsletter on Sunday, sorry for the duplication and hope you like the new format.
If you have any comments or feedback it would be great to hear from you at firstname.lastname@example.org
Poor blade maintenance can have devastating effects on the clipper. A tight blade is the main culprit, usually from lack of oil & lanolin from dog’s coats forming a varnish, sticking the blade together. This causes problems on every make of clipper. On Andis it wears the nylon drive & can cause the drive cam to snap off, on Oster it wears the drive & drive gearing & causes the clipper to heat very quickly. On Moser & Wahl it also wears the drive & the plastic cams. On Laube it causes the pivot bearing to spin inside the bottom part of the drive lever wearing out a circle & causing the clipper blade to snag badly (it is often found when this cools it will cut again for a short time) It puts strain on the motor & shortens the life of EVERY MAKE. With every clipper you get a different fault all caused by the same thing… Tight blades … Or forcing the blade though the coat faster than the clipper can cut, jamming in very matted coat & so on, anything which causes excessive strain on the drive.
Keep blades clean & well oiled regularly clean the hair out the blade with a small brush, clean hair from the clipper head around & between the hinge. Take your time when going through matted or thick coat, do not force the blade through, let it go at its own pace…. You will get there faster in the long run. Where possible clip clean coat.
