Getting Clipper blades to last for more than one clipping
Am I the only one that can't get blades to last for more than one clipping.
I have an Oster Clipmaster and A5. I usually do a full body clip in the spring, and I use a new set of blades every time. I have tried several times to reuse the blades but they are very dull. Is this typical? Am I doing something wrong?
When I clip, I bath my horse thoroughly. I use a lot of showsheen to get them slick. I use lots of cool lube in between.
I will admit that I am bad about using blade wash after finishing the clipping and also I tend to leave the blades on the clippers when I am done. I do use blade oil.
It just seems that I should be able to use my blades more than once!?!?!?
