The above clipper repair prices are for the most common models used. Newer models are usually under warranty
and parts are not made available by the manufacturers for some time or may be hard to get.
major manufacturers run out of various parts from time to time each year as they change tooling, shut-down for inventory
and the like. I try to stock the common parts but may not have everything and will have to order. This can mean
a delay of days or weeks or months depending on availability. I will inform you if this happens.
Since Oster was bought out their parts are becoming very difficutt to get in a timely way.(notice Sept 2020)
