Adjusting the t-outliner for close accurate outline (edge up, shape up)

Adjusting the t-outliner; First remove the blades from the edger, then loosen the two screws on the plastic part between both blades, place the cutting blade back and push the blade upward until they accurately line up, then tighten the screws.

If it bites, loosen the screws then adjust it until both blades line up. Remember when you attach the blade back to the edger, make sure the moving blade does not overlap on either side, if it overlaps it will bite. If it does overlap, slightly loosen both screws and shift the back blade towards the side that is overlapping. This should fix the problem. (Remember to tighten the screws when you are finished).

 

When doing the shapeup, do not press too hard or you will burn the client with the edger, creating scars.

RECAP; In order to adjusting the t-outliner; First remove the blades from the edger, then loosen the two screws on the plastic part between both blades, place the cutting blade back and push the blade upward until they line up. First try to line up both blades as accurately as you possibly can. If it bites then adjust it just a fraction until both blades line up. Remember when you attach the blade back to the edger, make sure the moving blade does not overlap on either side, if it overlaps it will bite. If it does overlap, slightly loosen both screws and shift the blade towards the side that is overlapping. This should fix the problem. (Remember to tighten the screws when you are finished). The tension screw only tightens or loosens the blades movement. After adjusting the outliners, test it on your arms first.

You should NEVER test to see how sharp your outliners, edger’s are on a client. After you have adjusted your outliners test them on your hands. Cut some hair on arms. If they are adjusted right, they should shave really close without biting or scarring. You should be able to use your outliners everywhere that needs shaping. The neckline is much more sensitive than everywhere else, so you should be more careful and apply less pressure when outlining within that area.
