barbersince98 John Oster immigrated to America alone at age 15, settling in Chicago. He served as a tool and die maker at Western Electric, before moving to Racine, WI. After several years Mr. Oster, along with three associates, started a tool and die business. They manufactured blades for hand and electric clippers, and in 1921 the company began manufacturing and selling hand clippers.

In 1924 the company became the John Oster Manufacturing Co., and in 1928 the company bought the patents and tooling for the first portable, motor-driven electric clipper. Mr. Oster recognized the need for detachable, interchangeable blades, and developed and patented the first such innovation. In 1935 the John Oster Co. bought the patent for the Stim-U-Lax massage machine. The Oster Lather Machine was introduced in 1937.

Mr. Oster was also a farmer, and developed one of the foremost herds of Brown Swiss cattle in the country. He was inducted into the Barber Hall of Fame in 1972 to recognize his very significant contributions to barbering. #oster @osterpro

Normal Barber History In The Making
barbersince98 The history of the company may be traced to 1911, when Leo J. Wahl, still a high school student in Sterling, Illinois, invented a handheld massager with an electromagnetic motor. Wahl’s uncle, a doctor, started a company to market the massagers, and they soon found a receptive clientele in doctors’ offices as well as in barbershops. Wahl continued to experiment with the electromagnetic motor concept while he went on to study engineering at the University of Illinois.

His direct sales to barbers had made him aware of a need in that industry for a more practical hair clipper, and in 1919 he produced the first such electromagnet hair clipper. It represented a considerable improvement over the standard clipper model, the motor for which had to be operated remotely via a cable. Wahl had taken over Wahl Manufacturing when his uncle had been called to military service during the Mexican Revolution; the company began manufacturing the hair clipper. Orders rolled in.

After patenting his new clipper in 1921 and wresting royalties from competitors who had copied his design (specifically Andis, which had been Wahl’s supplier of clipper blades), Wahl bought the factory and incorporated the business as Wahl Clipper Corporation on January 29, 1924. By this time, he had sold thousands of the devices to barbershops across the country. #historylesson @wahlpro #WAHL

A toolmaker by trade, Mr. Andis emigrated to the United States in 1908, and settled in Racine, WI. He soon established himself as a partner in a tool and die making concern. One of their customers was a small eastern manufacturer of hand-operated hair clippers, who went into bankruptcy, leaving Andis with marketless dies on his hands. Rather than junk all the dies, he bought the handles and molds from the defunct firm and started making hand clippers on his own. He took in two partners, John Oster and Henry Meltzer, and the company became Andis O.M. Company. In 1922, anxious to have the time to develop new products, Andis sold out to his partners. Electric clippers at that time were unwieldy, and were driven by a metal cable connected to an overhead electric motor. Andis eventually perfected a small, hand-held, self-contained electric clipper. It was an immediate success. After WWII, Andis continued developing new models as men's hairstyles evolved. The company has resisted diversification, and today his son and grandchildren still operate the company, and it is still the world leader in strictly professional barber clippers. He was inducted into the Barber Hall of Fame in 1970.
