I don't have the photos of the razor after the basic cleaning; I'll post those later. Here's a Gem Micromatic that I picked up out of a lot of "non-Gillette" razors. (I'll post that lot separately) The photos mostly speak for themselves. The last photo is when I put it into an ultrasonic cleaner (basic 30 watt Chicago Electric from Harbor Freight) with a mix of SC-1000 and Dawn dish detergent - in water, of course. The picture doesn't show it true justice; the water is GREEN, and you can't see the bottom. Anyone who thinks that an ultrasonic cleaner isn't necessary - it is. It really is.
