I'll keep that in mind. The ones I used yesterday worked really well and didn't heat up at all. I got a really even trim too. We'll see how my funds are this next month and I might go out and get a pair of horse clippers but these seem to be working really well so far.

I have a used human hair clipper that I use for trimming bridle paths and stuff on my horses. It doesn't work very well, but you can't really beat the price (free!).

drafts4ever- that's good that it's working for you. Heck, as long as they keep working for you, why worry about getting a new pair? Unless, of course, you really want to spend the money on one, it wouldn't hurt either way lol.

- If today was your last day, and tomorrow was too late, could you say goodbye to yesterday?

if they crap out I'll throw down the money. Right now I think I'll be using them for touch up stuff since it would take forever even with regular clippers if I ever wanted to fully body clip her. I don't know why I would but it would take HOURS.
