as per the title, my shears/ clippers are sharp, they just don't cut. kinda just "bend" or "catch" most of the grass or whatever, between the blades (see photo). Is there an adjustment I can make- tighten? loosen?
They might be sprung. It is caused by trying to cut something too big and forcing it. It is also possible that the nut is too tight. Loosen it a fraction and see if it helps. But normally nuts loosen with use, not tighten.thanks. so, I should tighten the blades - not loosen...?
What causes them to get spring? They've had very little use.
I wondered if they had been sharpened on the wrong side? hard to be certain from the pictures. Basically they are like scissors and are sharpened down the sloping, outside edge. The inside edges that meet should stay flat to shear off what you are cutting.
