Blades Get Hot!
I frequently touch the clipper blade
with my fingers or the inside of my wrist to monitor the heat level.
The higher the blade number, the faster they heat up. So a #10
blade gets hot faster than a #3 blade. If the blade is getting too warm,
it's time to either swap the blade for a cool one or use a coolant.
As the blade gets too warm, I replace it with another matching
blade. I set the blade on a cool surface (I like to set it on
the tile floor). When I only had one blade, I would move on to
a different part of the dog that won't require that blade while I
waited for the blade to cool.
Blade Coolant- I do not spray the
coolant near the dog. They don't need to be breathing the
fumes. I put a grocery bag on the floor, away from the dog,
hold the blade over it and spray it in the bag to cool it.
