Oster Clippers – Classic 76 Hair Clipper Review By admin | May 14, 2021 | 48 Oster Clippers – Classic 76 Hair Clipper Review Check current pricing here https://amzn.to/2rFyHQc Author: admin Posted in Tools
If you want to remove some hair in a hurry than these are perfect. If you plan to blend or fade you’ll probably need several blades or the universal comb set like in the video. The cost of blades really adds up so your probably better off going with the universal attachment comb set.
Are the combs the same thing as guards?
I thought you were supposed to turn it on when attaching new blades.
That shit is loud
what brand guards do you use, I can’t find any that fit my 76
hey what kind of guards do I buy for my oster topaz? what kind can I buy that fit help?
The Oster combs are made of sturdy hard plastic with very little flex. I know what you mean about the Wahl combs. I still have an old Wahl Color Pro and the combs that came with them were pretty flimsy in comparison.
Those 76 ers sound a little loud. I sharpen and repair them for a living, including numerous other makes. You mentioned you havent done any maintenance on those since you’ve owned them? They are way over due for a new drive,link and gear. That will quiet them back down and restore the power they had when they were new. The gears are a little pricey, about $10.00. The link and drive are about $6- $10 for both. Well worth the investment. They are good quality clippers. Nice video
Are these the older model?
Hey I need some help about this machine, I took out one head and the part where you place , where you introduce it has gone down, next to the machine so I cant put any head on because that part is blocked, how can I fix it ? Thank you
what would you recommened oster classic 76 or oster fast feeds?
hey i wanna get some of these. right now i use some wahl clippers. and usually cut my hair to 1.5 mm which is#1/2. i know the numbers are different. so what would be the closest to this number.i want something that’s at least 1mm.
Oh, *that’s* how you swap blades. Man the manual is zero help. Coming from a 20yo clipper without a blade system, I’m sitting here unscrewing the top blade and going "wth?". Thanks for the visual on it. All good I guess, taking the blade apart made it easy to figure out how to adjust tension and align the bottom/top blade the right way.
After about 10-15 minutes of continuous use it does start to heat up but mainly in the cover plate area and not to the point where it actually burns. Usually, if its well greased and oiled then it wont heat up as fast.
Thank you for your review. I have newer version of this model. I like to use clipers to cut deep or just cut little hair. What do you recommend.
The original kit is usually the Classic 76 and 1 or 2 detachable blades. Sellers of the Classic 76 often add the universal comb set (which does include a #5 comb) as a bundled item or it can be purchased separately.
i just bought this clippers and on the first day of using them i was trying to take off the attatchment on the blade and both came off and i noticed the blade latch isnt sticking out anymore its flat….what do i do?
how often do I sharpen my blades?
25 years, wow! Great buy there man, I wish products today didn’t break so easily.
If you’re looking for a comparable blade then try the Oster 0A blade which is close at 1.2mm
Do you know why other versions of the 76ers such as the silver limited edition don’t come with an oil ball bearing?
Does the nano guards fit on them to
When you change the blades, the clipper should be running . Very important
The black universal comb attachment set… How strong are the combs? I had a wahl with plastic clip on combs and the teeth were sort of flimsy and would become bent to the side and therefore cut the hair unevenly (low spots). Thanks in advance
Agreed about the how to attach the blades. I bought these for my wife, and she popped the blade off when she was trying to remove a clip. The spring loaded lever had depressed, so I had no idea the blade needed to seat in the lever. The instructions the oster 76 came with were suspect as hell. Thank you for that! These are some GREAT clippers!
Is it still working If you keep them clean and good they last long time.
Hey, just a quick question.
What blades are best to use for a short haircut? (marine’s style but little longer)
longer on the top and going shorter on the side
are this comb attacment’s may use for moser class 45
I’ve been trying to figure that one out too. It got better after I tightened the hinge screws.
Oster fast feed is used mostly for fading I guess if u wanna do your whole hair with it u can always go for a professional clipper never a kit that says home use.. Wahl 5 star! Or oster 76 for thr top of ur head …
yea but dont use a 000 blade withe the oster guards
why? because they wont cut the correct length
you have to get the 0000 OR 00000
what is the best wahl or oster ?
I just bought this clipper for work. I didn’t know there were universal guards for it too! Thought you just switched out blades to walk up the cut. I am More familiar using guards to do men’s cuts…so that is great info for me! I will look for them! XO
when you attach the blade onto the clipper henge the clipper should be on thats y it makes that noise since you have had the clipper for a while and had no maintenance done on it, you probably need the henge replaced.
thats looks like an awesome clipper, the last time i actually paid for a haircut cuz i was on vacation out of state, the barber used the classic 76. i really want to buy one of my own, it looks sick and cuts great.
hey im about to start cutting my own hair and im wondering, is this good for buzzcuts and blending etc.
Ces clippers are for chopping off alot of hair. Not optimum for fading or outlining
It is pronounced – O-ster
NOT – Os-ter
I just bough this razor, for home use, I’m confused as to when to use a blade vs when to use a comb ad one?
About a year or two ago I invested in an Andis T-Outliner. I only use it shape up my beard but I need to find a good guard for it for a 1.5 inch trim. Any idea how I can do this? Can’t find blade/attachment anywhere. I appreciate this video and sorry it’s not about Oster. I might look into them as well. Hope to hear from you. I only use these for my beards.
I went to cut my are not too long ago and I asked for a 5 all around and then a taper,and after that guy got done it looked like he gave me a 1 all around. He used a oster classic 76. And I was wondering, does the original kit comes with a 5 comb.
I’ve been curious to know myself. Recently I had to change out my end cap cause I busted it. The replacement was a complete cap with power cord and toggle switch. Just the feel alone didn’t seem as sturdy. The newer end caps are longer I guess because of the redesigned removable air filter screen. If you look at the classic 76 in the video the end cap is shorter. Also the replacement end cap had a plastic toggle switch whereas the toggle switch on my original cap was all metal. Hope that helps.
I really hate the guards…but it’s the best clipper I’ve ever had
