    Does anyone know where I can get one? Or even better, just the extension for my current clippers.

    I can't seem to find a set that goes above grade 8. Grade 10 would be sufficient, but 12 would be ideal.

    Thanks.

    Grade 8 is one inch (25mm). I like my hair on the top to be around 2 inches.

    I own a grade 8 and I used to cut my hair with it. Grade 8 is fantastic if you want to create a standard textured hair cut that doesn't look cropped or shaved in anyway.

    To my knowledge there is no such thing as a Grade 12 - that would be too long.

    You can get clipper attachments from hairdressing wholesalers, if you went on yell.com and looked up your nearest I'm sure they would sell a clipper attachment to you if you called in advance. They are only supposed to sell to card holders normally.

    Alternatively, google Wahl the clipper manufacturer and call their contact number and ask if they could sell them to you online or via the phone.

    Regards

    Clipper guards go up to 12, check on Amazon for Wahl size 12 clipper guards. They used to have longer ones, Remington still does but the guards are made from a thin rubber or plastic which can lead to the hair being cut uneven in patches which looks a bit stupid
