does anyone happen to know if these blades will work on a turbo groom. the factory blades are all rusty. the combs have wahl branding on them. the blades them self though have no banding on them just 3 0s. i assumed they were made by the same company as the combs that attach to them. the blades linked seem to be the only triple 0 blade they have currently i tired contacting them to ask if they would work but couldn't get an answer out of them.

I'm pretty sure Wahl made clippers for Kirby. The clippers were made in Racine Wisconsin.
Hmc or Chris has a post on the trimmers. It's about what you would expect from 30 year old clippers.

Out of Racine Wisconsin. I only know because my aunt lived there and I love Wahl shavers.
Is it like a shaver or hair cutter?

this would be more for cutting ur hair. i mean u could do ur beard with it but it but it would only trim it down so short not like all the way off.

i need to get one of those long bottle brushes to clean the hose out. it smelled musty i've filled it out super hot water and soap several times but its seems like it needs scrubbing out. the sander was nasty to i had to strip it down and wash all the plastic parts off.

the only thing i'm missing is the hair comb the small bottle of oil and the bottle of scuttle cleaner witch the seller had but the uk post refused to let him ship the package with it in there.

Good to know. I can't stand facial hair.
It's probably because shipping liquids that are flammable is almost impossible to ship.
