How to check is the level worn-out?

If the level held between your fingers and moved left and right has a movement then it needs to be replaced. When the machine is new and its best it has no movement at all. The movement of the level will be an indication that gearbox may need to be replaced.

We stronlgy recommend that all clipper machines be serviced regularly depending on the amount of work they do to maintain its efficiency.
