      That will depend a little bit on the brand of combs.

       

      Most will fit a 10, 15, 30 or 40.

       

      The Wahl Stainless Steel combs can NOT be used with a 40 blade. They will break the teeth on the 40 in seconds.

      Hey guys I'm back. Its been a while. I got quite a few questions about snap on combs and clipper blades. My first question is do I have to use 1/2 inch snap on comb to do 1/2 inch hair cut or can I just use the # 3 blade. Which is better to use? I'm a new groomer

      It a personal preference. I use a clipper vac so I tend to always use combs. I can just keep the 15 blade on my clippers and swap out combs.
      Something to know, the lengths are measured going against the lay of the coat. When using with, the length will vary depending on coat type.

      I think you get less clipper lines when you use a comb because a #10 (or shorter) blade has teeth that are closer together than on a #3 blade. Jodi Murphy also says on her comb attachments DVD that you get less clippers lines with combs. Also, on a thick curly coat, sometimes a #3 blade won't even go through it and you have to use a comb. I agree with Barb that it's just easiest to keep the same blade on your clippers and swap out the combs.
