how heavy are these clippers? and are these clippers loud or has a soft sound when in use?
Firm Not loud. If they clatter, they need to be adjusted. No, not heavy. Good clprs.
Will these clippers give me an extremely close cut? I like to take my hair down to the scalp, but I don't "bic" it.
If you want an Andis clipper, go with the Andis fade master. The regular Masters go to a .000 and the fade Masters go to .00000. Which gives you a closer cut. Moving the lever back also gives you a .000 cut with the fade masters.
I just got mine and have cut one person's hair, then they started making a terrible noise. I've messed with the screw is there another fix for them?
I had the same problem with 2 pairs. Normally you can adjust the blades to fix this, but this seller's clippers don't seem to be "new". Mine arrived with her in it.
Do I understand tha this trimer is adjustable? if so to what lenghts, 1mm to 10 mm ???
It is adjustable. It's a heavy-duty clipper, much more than a trimmer. I'm not quite sure about the length in mm. But it adapts from 000 - 1
So, this is 85$ clipper, while Andis also have " Andis Easy Cut + combs and stuff " for around 17$ What's making this expensive, or that cheap?
The Andis Master is a "professional" clipper. It is one that a professional hairdresser could buy. The blades and blade adjustments are precise. His motor is a heavy motor that is made for many hours of hair cutting. If you haven't cut your hair, you probably won't be able to tell the difference, except that the Master has very few plastic parts. As with any skilled trade, a tool is only as good as the skill of the user. If you're not a trained barber or esthetician, just get one for $17 because it won't make any difference in your hands. If you ever get good at cutting hair in a year or two, get the Master and you'll see the difference right away.
Does the lever lock into place at each notch? If not, does it at least hold its position, even with firm pressure on the blade?
The lever won't lock and mine slipped all over the place. I used to cover it with duct tape. The good news is that by simply tightening the screws under the head, you don't have to use duct tape at all. You can tighten this thing so that it barely moves under a lot of pressure from your finger.
Is it just me? The lever on the side doesn't hold when trimming. It slips it's way down forcing me to get a closer trim than I want, or to use combs.
When you need to take it off you need to take the fading blade off and you will see two other small screws one on the left and one on the right, try to tighten the right side a bit which is for the he handle on the side.. Yours is too loose.
Are these sharp out of the box?
I've had mine for a year and a half...still don't need to sharpen them. very sharp out of the box.
What is the difference in an Andis "Improved" Master and an Andis Master? Even the Amazon description seems to use the terms interchangeably.
I'm not sure, but from what I understand they are the same.
What would leave long hairs? I just bought these clippers and have never had this problem before.
Double-check that the blade is properly aligned. It may just need to be realigned.
