Andis Pulse ZR II Clipper repair

Faulty Andis ZRII Clipper

Amanda sent us her faulty ZR2 clipper which is not working after she dropped it.

Andis Pulse ZR and ZRII clipper are great clippers but the weak point is their battery.

The battery has a circuit board in it which when faulty will cut the power even when fully charged.

The battery can fail prematurely if the clipper is dropped, when the clipper is stored without charging, and also for no particular reason.

Cost to repair

  • Small clipper service – £20
  • Andis ZRII battery – £88
  • Andis drive lever – £5
  • Return post 1st signed – £5.50
  • Total – £118.50

Sorry Amanda the ZRII batteries are very expensive. We would recommend Heiniger Saphir as more reliable. 👍

Clipper Blade Lost in Post

Clipper Blade Lost in Post

Cath’s clipper blades arrived today, with just one set of blades in the envelope when there should have been two.

The weight recorded on the label also confirms the package is too light.

  • Thin or paper packages can split open in the post so the contents can fall out.
  • Royal Mail sort post by tossing it into sacks held in frames which can cause delicate packaging to split.
  • Once an item has falling from its packaging postal workers cannot identify who sent it.
  • There is currently no system for claiming these lost items.

Sorry Cath its unlikely you will get your lost clipper blades back 🐤

DIY sharpened clipper blade

Why is DIY sharpening bad for your clipper blades ?

Sometimes people send us clipper blades which they have tried to sharpen themselves and this is never a good thing.

DIY sharpening on a flat (ish) surface removes more metal at the edges so the surface is rounded down toward the edges (convex).

The harder you try to sharpen your blade on a flat surface then the more rounded (convex) you will make it.

Sandpaper quickly makes them very rounded and a few light passes on a diamond stone is not so bad.

When your blade is rounded down at the edges we must grind the whole surface down to make it flat.

The blade pictured has been sharpened on sandpaper by Geoff. – The darker area in the middles was easy to make flat, but the lighter part towards the edge is rounded down. – This clipper blade would need a lot of grinding to get it flat right to the tips of the blade.
