Clippers -- large ones; need advice! Fast!!
Backstory -- I have 2 sets of good old-timey Osters that have worked, hard, for decades.
Both sets have gotten persnickety - hard to 'start', have to thump them on my hand or on the wall to get to go 'on', and Lord help you if you turn off while clipping the horse - harder yet to get re-started.
Anyway, I have my good clippers' repair guy work on them, get them going, fix the connections/wire/whatever it is.
And they work fine for a few clippings, then go back to their old ways.
I think about it every time - chi-ching, I could buy a new sets for what I'm spending on repairs, yadda yadda.
So I go to clip a horse yesterday, and *neither* pair will start. At all.
So I've got a call in to my guy (owner of the old Stable Door in Warrenton; talented dude) to take them in, but ....
wondering if its ..... time.
Talking to my chiro/vet just now and he suggested a brand he called Enders. I find Ender's online, but haven't yet studied it.
Wonder if anyone has thoughts/dreams/reasoning/ideas/advice.
I don't need 2 sets, though 2 is nice to have. Maybe I should have my guy fix the 2 as good as he can for back-ups, and still get some new ones. ??
These have to be hardy and long-lived - I clip 10+ horses a month for 4-5 months a year. I'm not too bothered by the noise of the old Osters but chiro/vet said this Ender's clippers are wide-blades plus whisper quiet, both of which sound great.
Carry on with any/all advice please.
Thanks in advance!
