Oiling Your Taper Clipper. Taper Clippers should be oiled on a regular ba- sis as part of the ongoing maintenance of your clipper. Oiling is a quick and easy way to en- sure better cutting performance and longer blade life. As the top blade of the clipper moves at very high speed it is essential oil is present to stop both heat and wear. Simply turn on the clipper and apply two or three drops of oil across the top of the moving blade. This proce- dure should be done prior to every haircut to give you the best possible performance. Use only WAHL CLIPPER OIL as it is specifi- cally designed for this role and will not leave any sticky residue on the blades Tuning Your Taper Clipper. Wahl Taper Clippers are tuned at the factory to run on Australian or New Zealand voltage 230240v/50Hz however due to the nature of our electrical supply system means the actual voltage in your location can be +/- 10. Taper clipper performance will vary with the actual voltage in your location so it is essential to ‘ tune’ your taper clipper to get the best perform- ance. The procedure for this is as follows: A Oil clipper as instructed above. This should always be the first step. B With the clipper still running turn the power screw the large plastic screw on the side on the clipper – see diagram below clockwise until you hear a loud ‘ clattering’ noise. C Now turn the screw anti-clockwise about ½ a turn until the clattering stops. D Turn the clipper on and off a few times to make sure it does not clatter. If it continues to clatter turn the screw a little further anti- clockwise. E The clipper should now be operating at maximum power for your locality and you should notice the clipper always turns on with an audible ‘ clunk’ noise. This is a good indicator the clipper is properly tuned. Removing Your Taper Clipper Blades. You clipper blades should be removed periodically at least once a month to allow the cut hair to be cleaned out from under the blades. Simply use a Philips head screwdriver to undo the blade screws and then remove the blades. Remove the sponge and clean it plus any hair that is caught in the clip- per. Reverse the process to re-attach the blades. Aligning Your Taper Clipper Blades. Taper clipper have adjustable blade alignment which needs to be reset after removing the blades or tuning your clipper as this will affect the blade alignment. With the blade screws only semi tight- ened you can move the bottom blade around to position it correctly as below: A Move the taper lever upwards towards the lid of the clipper so the blades are in the closed position. i.e. closet cutting length. B The top bottom blades should be parallel with the top blade approx 1.0mm behind the bottom blade. Do not have the top blade level with the bottom blade as this can cause skin pinching or cutting. See Diagram Below. C The extreme left hand tooth on the top blade should be positioned so it is over the gap be- tween the two left hand teeth of the lower blade. i.e. the extreme left gap on the lower blade. See Diagram Below D Slowly tighten each screw ensuring you do not alter the alignment in the process. The best way is to tighten each screw a little at a time swapping from one to the other. E Check your alignment setting with the blades tightened and the lever in the closed position to ensure you can not cause pinching or cut- ting of the skin.
