I ordered an Oster #7F blade from Amazon, but the product’s quality seemed mediocre. The upper blade was catching as I tried to slide it back and forth. The upper and lower blades were also misaligned; however, the blade worked when mounted on the clipper.
I also ordered A new dual-speed Oster A5. It came with a nicely polished #10 blade. I’m not sure why the #7F blade’s quality was so poor.
It took me four hours to finish everything. Actually, I wasn’t finished, but Hoshi jumped off the table (it’s not high). He was really fidgety today. He didn’t want me going near his dew claw nubs or butt. I had a hard time trimming the folds in his lower lip; Hoshi hates that too.
The new two-speed A5 came yesterday from Amazon. It didn’t seem to have the same power as the single speed A5. Hoshi didn’t like the motor’s sound. It doesn’t sound like my old A5.
I gave Hoshi a bath and trim early this morning. I tried to make it quick but it still took almost three hours. I did the basics: head, neck, and paws.
