How To Zero Gap Andis Slimline Pro Li Quickly And Easily
Before moving onto how the blade can be zero gapped, it’s crucial to understand just what the blade is made from. The trimmer’s blade has a simple design that consists of just a few parts. The first notable part is the ‘t-guide’. The t-guide gives a platform for the blade to rest on when it slides from left to right. In order to zero-gap the cutting blade, the t-guide needs to lifted up to allow the cutting blade to rest on the comb.
To adjust the t-guide, simply loosen the screws that hold it in place and adjust the t-guide to your desired position. It’s best to refrain from removing the screws entirely. When you adjust the t-guide, make sure that it’s not totally parallel with the blade. It should be 4-5 hair strands above the cutting blade. This makes sure that you don’t accidentally cut yourself when you’re lining up your beard. Like any good barber, double-check that the blade and the comb are totally even. This ensures that you get straight lines.
When you tighten the screws hold the t-guide in place. Be sure that you’re gentle with the screws so as not to damage the t-guide. Be sure that the screws are totally tight and double-check that the blade is tight. You’ll then want to put the blade back onto the trimmer. Be sure to check the blade to make sure that it’s totally straight before taking it out on the shop floor. Every barber’s worst nightmare is cutting a client out on the floor. Once you ensure that the blade is safe to use you’re good to go!!
