Sears Electric Hair Clipper Set 7934

Sears Electric Hair Clipper Set 7934 - Airplanes and RocketsIn my zeal to procure some of the items I remember having or using as a kid in the 1960s and '70s, along with some of the things Melanie and I had when we first got married back in 1983, I ran across this Sears Electric Clipper Set (#7934) on eBay. The seller was only asking about $10 for it, so here it is.

As you can see in the photos, it is in mint condition, and even the original box shows only minor wear and tear from sitting in someone's closet for more than half a century.

 

 

I disassembled the clippers and did a thorough cleaning (not much there) and oiled the moving parts with a bit of 3-in-1. Everything seems to be in great condition. Even the power cord is supple and unscathed. One of the plastic blade attachments was included, although the instruction sheet shows four types. Judging from other similar clippers for sale on eBay, the set only came with one, and the other styles must have been available for purchase separately. If you have any you can bear to part with, please let me know.

Up until about the time I was in forth or fifth grade, my father cut my hair using one of these Sears electric hair clippers. He gave me a crew cut like his, only mine had a little mound at the front, just above the forehead. There's probably a name for it. By the late 1960s, long hair was the "thing," and to my father's dismay I expressed a desire to let me hair grow longer. It never did get to the "hippie" stage, but did eventually grow to near shoulder length. Then, in November of 1978, the barber at Lackland AFB, Texas, styled it for me back to my early days.

Now, Melanie sometimes uses it to trim neck hairs for me after giving me a haircut herself. I haven't paid a barber in more than four decades.
