Greetings! I’m Rex, and over the past eight years, I’ve had the privilege of working as a professional hair cutter. Today, I’m excited to share my extensive experience with you as we dive into the world of codeless zero gapped clippers. At Fairness Kit, we believe that achieving a sharp, precise haircut is an art form in itself. As someone who has personally used and loved these clippers in various aspects of my career, I’m here to guide you through the nuances of these innovative tools.
Trimmer vs. Clipper: Understanding the Difference
Before we explore the depths of zero gapping, let’s establish a foundation by understanding the fundamental difference between trimmers and clippers. Trimmers are meticulously designed for intricate work like outlining and detailing, while clippers are engineered for efficiently cutting larger sections of hair. This distinction sets the stage for our exploration of the concept of zero gapping.
Zero Gapping: What Is It? Why Is It Important?
Zero gapping, the heart of today’s discussion, refers to the art of adjusting the blades of your clipper or trimmer to create a seamless, precise cut. Drawing from my own experience, I can attest that zero gapping is crucial for achieving razor-sharp lines, immaculate fades, and expertly defined styles. Whether you’re a dedicated professional or someone passionate about self-grooming, embracing zero gapping can elevate your skills and transform your results.
Methods for Zero Gapping: Old School Manual Method vs. Zero Gapping Tool
When it comes to achieving the perfect zero gap on your clipper or trimmer blades, you have two primary methods at your disposal: the traditional old school manual approach and the more modern option of using a specialized zero gapping tool.
Experimentation is key as you discover what works best for you and your chosen clipper or trimmer. Your safety remains a top priority throughout this process, so proceed with caution and care.
Let’s delve into the intricacies of each method:
1. Old School Manual Method
The old school manual method involves adjusting the tension between the blades of your clipper or trimmer using basic tools such as a screwdriver. Here’s how it’s done:
Step 1: Ensure your clipper is switched off and unplugged for safety.
Step 2: Locate the screws on either side of the clipper’s blade assembly. These screws control the tension between the blades.
Step 3: Use a flathead screwdriver to carefully loosen the screws, allowing the blades to move slightly.
Step 4: Gradually tighten the screws while gently pressing the blades together. This process eliminates the gap between the blades.
Step 5: Test the clipper on a small section of hair to ensure the zero gap is achieved. Make further adjustments if needed.
The old school manual method requires a steady hand and patience, as over-tightening the screws can lead to blade damage or uneven cutting. While this method is effective, it demands a level of skill and practice to master.
2. Using a Zero Gapping Tool
In recent years, the availability of specialized zero gapping tools has revolutionized the process of achieving a precise zero gap. These tools are designed to simplify the adjustment process and reduce the risk of damaging your clipper blades. Here’s how to use a zero gapping tool.
Step 1: Start with your clipper switched off and unplugged.
Step 2: Place the zero gapping tool between the blades, ensuring it rests evenly on both sides.
Step 3: Tighten the blade screws while the tool is in place, ensuring the blades are held at the desired zero gap.
Step 4: Remove the zero gapping tool and test the clipper’s cutting ability on a small section of hair. Make any further adjustments if necessary.
Zero gapping tools offer a user-friendly and consistent way to achieve the desired zero gap without the risk of over-tightening or uneven adjustment. They are especially beneficial for those new to the concept of zero gapping or those who value convenience.
