Halacha - shaving
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question:
Answer: As far as I can tell, the trimmer is built similarly to a hair cutting machine with a stationary lower blade and a vibrating upper one. This will not give an extremely close shave, but it is Halachically acceptable to nearly all Poskim. The main concern is to be careful not to hold the trimmer at an angle where the moving blade comes in direct contact with the skin, where it could potentially cut the hair flush without the aid of a scissor action.
