Yeah I use a Whal Super Taper.

Haven't been to the barbers in about 8 years. But not many barbers cut my hair well. Have mixed race hair - it ain't afro, and it ain't straight.

Got some clippers right do the job perfect

Now I dropped them the other day, now when I switch them on the vibration is alot louder...I am guessing screws just need tightening

however I can see on the body its slightly seperated...if u hold them tight and squeeze then it vibrates the usual way

I am guessing I shouldn't use them...they are only for shape ups/beards

Trust me .. No matter how many youtube tutorial vids I watched, I always seemed to f*ck it up on my ones.

Only time I get it right is when I retouched what the barber did previously..

After mucking it upon a few occasions I had a new level of respect for barbers.

Sometimes that fiver is just worth paying for

If it's just for cutting and not shaping, Wahl Super Taper. Mine are being funny now but I've had them for over three years. Going to buy a fresh one later this year. Never had a problem with them. If you are looking to shape or basically shave as well get Andis T.

Saved alot of money doing my own hair over the past 12 months. The hardest part is doing it first time. Eventually you get used to it. It's not that hard, no need to fear...

To answer the question I use wahl to cut my hair, and andis for the line up.
