Thinners & Blenders January 11 2017
Hi Groomer's :-). I certainly hope everyone's new year is off to a great start!
Thinners and Blenders are invaluable tools for the professional groomer, but they are not without their quirks. Unlike conventional straight shears it seems relatively common for the straight edge to catch on the teeth of these shears. In extreme cases this can cause bent or missing teeth and deep nicks in the straight edge.
Here's a tip....at the first hint of "catching" you can close the shears by gently spreading the shear tips. Then apply finger pressure to the shear tips and slowly open the shears while applying gentle closure pressure to the tips. If you do this a few times it will usually smooth out any irregularities between the straight and toothed edges, and you should be able to continue to use the shears and not have to put them into the "needs sharpening" bin :-).
Please feel free to call me or text me at 587-832-5515 if you have any questions about this or any other sharpening, clipper or dryer questions.
Have a great week....Andy
