    Default Clipper repair near Marshall, VA?

    My clippers went belly-up this week, and I'd like to see if a repair is possible before I replace. Any recommendations?

    No one in Marshall, but I know a guy near Richmond who does good work with speedy turnaround. You could probably mail your clippers to him. Let me know if you want his contact info.

    Let me see if anyone else has any recommendations closer, but I might give that a whirl. Thanks!

    Anyone else?

    I think you can take them to Journeyman in Middleburg, they send them out to be repaired. I haven't had it done, but they did a bunch of blades this fall for me.

    the hardware store in Marshall across from the marshall small animal vet clinic does clippers. They do all the vet clippers work, which is how I found them. Tri-county feed may also do them. I haven't asked since they moved.

    I believe the CFC (co-op) does them. Marshall Hardware used to do them too.

    You may want to try Tri-County in Marshall (I know they do blade sharpening so they may do clipper repair as well) and The Tack Box in M'burg as well.

    reviving this since I lent my Clipmasters out this week and they took a header.....cracked all near the motor, and the motor isn't acting right.

    Looking for someone in the Northern VA area that does large clipper repair. I know The Tack Box doesn't do in-area repairs anymore, but does send them out to a company in PA.
    There's coffee in that nebula.

    I wonder if they send them to Gil's Sharp Shop? He's in Fort Loudon PA and travels to most of the major horse/dog shows (Upperville, PA National, Vermont, and used to do WEF). He does all of my clipper repair and sharpening. You can ship them directly to him.

    Don't know how far this guy is from you, but I sent my clippers to him for a tune up and was very happy with the work he did.
