    Thank you Andrew. Someday, if I am fortunate enough, I will find a nice case and instruction booklet to compliment my D3.

    Jim @jimjo1031 maintains a thread where you can download the graphics to print a new copy of the instructions. Here 's the 1958 version you are looking for.

    I haven't seen anyplace that mentions what size they are. But looking at pictures where they show the instructions in cases, they appear to be slightly wider than a blade dispenser. I make them about 1/10" wider than the blade dispenser. If anyone needs help with them or doesn't have a printer, I'd be glad to make them up.

    I know you have an E-4 too, Rick. I am really enjoying mine as well, and dialed up to 9 is the way to go!

    Good morning everybody, and now directly from Phoenix, from Razor Emporium, I have this precious Gillette Toggle restored in Rhodium finish, which makes me very happy.
    It's very soft and it's perfect, with Super Iridium blades it's perfect. I have to compare it with the Fat Boy, to see if there are differences.
    I want to thank Matt, for his attention and all those who need it, to make our dreams come true.
    Gillette Toggle F4 in Rodium. A true part of the history of shaving that gave way and was a precursor of the Fat Boy, perfectly restored and that works like a charm.
    I leave some photos for you to enjoy your image.
    Best Regards.

    Fatboy Friday's Shave
    [​IMG]

    Proraso Pre Shave
    Van Der Hagen Luxury
    Jayaruh #284
    Gillette 195 Fatboy
    Astra SP
    CWR
    Thayer's Lemon WH
    Aqua Velva Musk

    I started off with Proraso Pre Shave. The Van Der Hagen Luxury Shaving Soap face-lathered well with the Jayaruh #284 synthetic brush. I did two passes with the Gillette 195 Fatboy Razor with an Astra SP blade and ended up with a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse, I finished off with Thayer's Lemon WH and then Aqua Velva Musk AS. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    Yes, yes you are. How can you post a photo of such a beefy, substantial looking DE without giving a clue who made it? That's a nice looking piece but is it adjustable?
