How to Use

How to attach clipper blades onto your clipping machine.

See "Downloadable PDF" above.

Setting Tension for Clipping Head

  1. Remove the tension bolt assembly.
  2. Fit the blades on to the clipper head. The top blade will fit into the groove of the clipper head. The bottom blade should be placed over the comb pegs with the Premier logo visible. Screw the tension nut down hand-tight.
  3. Turn the tension nut back two turns.
  4. Oil the blades. Apply a few drops of oil at least every 3 min. to prolong blade sharpness and reduce friction and heating.
Also apply a few drops to the hole labeled "oil" every 10 - 15 minutes. This oils the round bushing that drives the top blade back and forth.


Storing the Clipper/Shearer, Blades, Combs & Cutters

  • Remove blades/combs/cutters from clipper or shearer.
  • Clean blades/combs/cutters immediately after use by using a small brush or blowing off any excess dirt or hair. Cover with oil to reduce risk of rust. High carbon steel clipper blades will rust overnight. Rust destroys both edge and polished surface of blades.
  • Store clipper/shearer and blades away from solvents, chemicals and moisture. Never leave them where they can be damaged by accidental impact. (We offer a storage box and wool felt for the blades and a case for the clippers.)

Sharpening and Cleaning

  • To reproduce the quality of the cutting edge on the clipper blades that came from the factory, a lapping machine must be used. Most other methods are, in our experience, inferior. In addition to producing a cutting edge that won’t last, some methods can permanently damage blades. The most common “culprit” is using large high speed grinding wheels that are used to sharpen cutters and combs.
  • Who uses lapping machines and who does not? Premier does and you can ship them to us. Other firms also use systems/machines that work well.

Warning: Clipper blades/cutters/combs that have been sharpened by inferior methods or inexperienced people may be damaged to such an extent that they can never be restored to a satisfactory cutting capability. The same is true of blades that have become too heavily pitted by rust.
