Clipper blades sharpened

Hi Guys,

I recently sent 4 sets of clipper blades away to be sharpened.

I always bath my horse the day before and this was a third clip on my Gelderlander so not an overly thick coat.

I clipped his quarters 1st and after 10 minutes took the blades off to clean and oil the blades as normal. I couldn't get the blades to cut any more coat and it was obviously pulling the hair.

I checked tension, blades etc. And got the same result.

I swapped to another set of blades which cut perfectly but again blunted very quickly resulting in pulling hair.

I don't normally need 3 sets of blades to do a clip.

I'm wondering if they haven't been sharpened properly? Can anyone think of any other reason?

Thanks

How old are they? There is a limit to the number of times blades can be successfully sharpened.

When were your clippers last serviced. I was having similar issues, sent clippers off - apparently the lugs the blades locate on where worn. Replaced those & fine now. Was told the totally sharp blades worked, but the smallest wear stopped them cutting ok. Sorry I'm not technical, but it sorted my issue.
