or play in drive parts. Cleaning, lubing, checking interior parts and testing are all part of the basic charge.

Conair . . .
depending on clone type. Not as reliable as above generally - these clones of Oster and Andis clippers are made in China and
while inexpensive are prone to more problems than the real Oster and Andis designs and parts unique
to Conair are no longer available as the only parts supplier gave up on them.
Large animal clippers (Clipmaster, Lister, Andis HLC's etc) $25
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 depending on availability. I will inform you if this happens.
