Blade Adjustment:
Move thumb adjustment lever to raise or lower bottom blade. Raise blade for fine setting to cut hair very short for neck areas,  etc. lower blade for coarse setting to leave  hair longer for sideburns, etc. attachments  may also be used with adjustable clippers. Follow regular attachments instructions (Figure 1).Oster-076070-010-Adjustable-Blade-Clipper-01


To Attach: Get front edge of blade started in comb track. Press palm of hand against blade guard and push comb onto blade. If there resistance, place drop of oil on inner side of comb. If blade guard is not available, use precaution when pressing hand against comb.


To maintain longer clipper blade life, we recommend periodic cleaning and oiling, using Oster TM Blade Wash cleaning solution (catalog
no. 76300-103) and 5 weight oil Blade Lube lubricate log No. 76300-106). We also recommend the use of Oster Kube lubricant (Catalog No. 76300- 101) during extended usage.

Blade Cleaning:

Position the blade in a flat dish filled with just enough Blade Wash to cover only the blade. Turn on clipper and listen for change in the hum of the motor. As the build-up is removed, the clean blade runs faster and higher pitch. When the pitch stabilizes (30 to 60 seconds), turn off clipper and unplug. Use a lint-free cloth to wipe blade as dry as possible. Oil blades.

Blade Oiling:
Carefully slide upper blade left or right far enough to place ONE drop of oil on each running rail of the lower blade. Excess oiling will cause hair to stick between teeth, slowing or jamming blades. Turn on clipper and spray Oster TM Kool-Lube lubricant through blade teeth while clipper is running.

Blade Realignment:
After continued use, the clipper may start to clatter or the blade sweep may decrease. To adjust the clipper back to its optimal performance, turn the calibration screw in (clockwise) (Figure 2) until the armature and field begin to make contact (clatter). Back the screw out (counter clockwise) approximately ¼ turn (Figure 3).



Before replacing the blade guard for Figure 3 clipper storage, spread one or two drops of oil over the blade to prevent the blade from rusting. Replace the blade guard. Coil the electric cord and secure with paper (not metal) twist fastener. Store clipper in its original carton in a dry location.
