    Default Spinoff Clipping: Blades sizes?

    I need to finish up clipping a pony and need to change to a smaller clipper for some of the tight spots. I used the big Oster variable speed clippers, blade is the 84AU and need a blade on an A5 that cuts the hair the same length. Tried Oster's website and couldn't get a live person through customer service. Help!

    In my experience, the Andis T-84 blade cuts the same length as the 84/83AU Combo for the Clip Master. I have been told they work OK on Osters that use the same attachment system. I like the T-shape, it lets you get into some crannies you otherwise can't get in to.

    3/32" or 2.4 mm is what the T-84 leaves.

    Here is the Oster Cryogen-X size chart: http://www.osterpro.com/includes/Cry...BladeChart.pdf. Apparently, there isn't a 3/32" blade for the A5, but something with only 1/32" difference might be acceptable for you?

    you want 10s for the A5.

    Thank you both! More importantly the half clipped pony thanks you too! He has to hide out in the barn during the day until I finish his clip job.
