Clipper Blade Sharpening Pricing 2023

A5, 76 Clipper blades  (Andis, Oster, Wahl, Laube, off brand) $10

Wahl Arco 5:1 blades $10. Mini Arco not much metal to sharpen so it depends on condition.

Large animal Oster/Andis/Lister, etc. $10.00 and wide blades & large animal.

Note: Andis RBG 5:1 adjustable do not have enough metal on cutter to sharpen. The new Andis Wahl Arco compatible blades are easily done however.

Sheep Blades $2.50 for cutter, $5.00 for combs but badly sharpened or extra damaged blades will be higher, minimum of $7 for set.

 Laube Speedfeed blades - not done. 

 Stylist/barber adjustable blades. $10.00 -$12, includes Styleliner/Outliner and other trimmer blades (not all trimmer blades can be re-sharpened)

 Note I do sharpen Ceramic Cutters - same prices as above:

 On trimmer blades please note if you specify and close cut on trimmer blades the cutter will be set near the comb tips. If you press the blade too hard it can cut your customer's skin so a light touch is needed. For regular set back of the cutter this is not a problem and this is the normal manufacture setting. I do not relieve the back side for custom cutting.


Note: I have replacement A5 comb blades for damaged or worn out comb blades and cutters are available in both steel and ceramic.

Clipper Repair 
Generally blade drives are always changed. Worn blade drives can cause dragging as the back and forth motion may not be sufficient due to drive wear or play in drive parts. Cleaning, lubing, checking interior parts and testing are all part of the basic charge.

Note: I stock many Laube parts now.

Wahl KM1, 2, 10 . . . . .  $3 basic charge + parts
includes cleaning, lubrication, cords and switches. Some Wahl parts are not available or serviceable.

Large animal clippers (Clipmaster, Lister, Andis HLC's etc) $35

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.

All the 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)
