Default Vintage Electric Hair Clippers

After looking through all of the forums, this is the closest I felt I could find to ask about these.

I want to buy a vintage set of electric clippers, but know nothing about which brands or models might have been better.

Generally, I like the ones I have seen that are made of polished aluminum castings, and employ the vibrating linear type of motor. A linear reluctance synchronous motor, if I had to guess what it might be called. Like in an aquarium air pump. Not a rotary motor driving an eccentric, like a hedge trimmer.

Are there any vintage barber shop equipment collectors here? Would that be called "Barberana" lol?

Thanks,
Keith

I bought an Oster. Works and sounds like the ones I remember from the barber shop. Has been a decade or so, so don't know if they are the same. Only complaint is I have to keep cutting head fully oiled because cutters are plain steel.

I have a old Oster 76 clipper. The round cord has the rubber all cracking. Still being made today. I should replace the cord and maybe find it a new home.

!908 Koken Barbers Chair removed out of its original installation in Bettsville, Ohio. I am not into barbers things, however the condition and rarity of this chair made me have it...
