    I buy more hair clippers than I should, none seem to do the trick! I’m a bit of a wookie and need to keep the chest wig down to a decent length. Whenever I attempt this chore I end up looking like I’ve got alopecia!

    Also use it to take face fuzz back to stubble as I never clean shave, (scruffy arse builder).

    Any recommendations?

    Buy a set thats going to last ..missus is a hairdresser and in the 20 years we have been together she has only had two clippers 1× corded set and a cordless set ( last year ) from WAHL ..

    Expensive ..yeah ..but you get what you pay for ..

    Edit : how you can stand trimming chest hair is beyond me ..I’m also gorilla like and can’t stand any material against my chest if I trim it back ..

    I’ve only done this twice ..the second time just to confirm if I’d got it wrong the first time !😁

    I have had a set of Wahl professional clippers for years, bought them from one of those hairdresser supply shops.

    Recently got a cordless Remington set and it’s very good. https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B012F8MS9A/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    Wahl Supertaper for heads, Wahl detailer for your other bits.

    That Remington one is specific for head hair really and that’s where I think the problem arises. We’re talking the need for strimmer ability here. 😂

    Wahl Super Taper (mains or cordless)

    I’m selling a nice Wahl Bellina Cordless if you’re interested 🙂

    Cordless, so you can do it in the shower (before actually turning on shower)

    Chest hair here too, and boaby n baws, armpits anaw. Not completely bald, just trim. Less sweaty, and only wimmin in the 80s liked the Tom Selleck look.

    Wahl here too.

    Had them for years.

    Oil them every time. You can adjust the blades (or something) you can buy replacement blades.

    Oil them every time

    What kind of oil? I used to use a dot of olive oil but is there a better type?

    I knacker clippers as well. Using hair clippers on face or body hair just ruins the edge.

    Current weapon of choice from head to toe is a Phillips beard trimmer thing. It’s not as fast to do my head as the clippers were when they were new, but sod it, one tool to do two/three jobs is a winner for me.

    I’m similar to you been through various Wahl from the home kit, detailers (good but not strong enough for think hair), sterling 2 (good for tidying up as they aren’t too sharp).

    This summer I got some cordless magic clip by wahl. Takes your stumble back in about a minute or 2, gets through body hair quickly although a bit baulky to shave down there. 1 charge lasts for ages, just keep them oiled and cleaned after every use. They are similar to super taper with a special blade.

    I’ve had the previous 2 version of these and both were great, left the first one in a holiday let and have had the second one for over 10 years now. Highly recommended.

    You can use it without guard for a short stubble, wash it under tap/in shower if you wanted to and it never needs oiled.

    Wahl here for 15 years odd.

    Currently needs some new sharper blades.

    I use Wahl animal grooming clippers, can’t see any other model name on them. Much better than normal hair clippers.

    Been using Wahl Super Taper for ~10 years, grade zero every 4-6 weeks, been great.
