Well, the clippers I just bought at the estate sale are dog trimmers. They are Osters, but I have no idea if this will work. The lady had a whole box of clippers, and I just pulled out the ones that looked the most heavy-duty. I tried them out, and picked out the ones that seemed to work the best. Well, after unraveling the cords... Ta-da! dog grooming clippers. Bleh. Will these work, or am I bound to hunt for more clippers?
