Discussion in 'Safety Razors' started by ColtJustice, Aug 30, 2017.
I've got a couple of ideas I still want to try. Otherwise, that's always an option for later.
So there is a happy ending to this story. I was so frustrated when it happened, I just overlooked there is a small screw slot on the bottom, inside the cap. My tired old eyes just didn't see it. When I did see it, I was still just too frustrated and angry at it to try it again right away. So, when I calmed down, I took a screwdriver to it and found out it unscrews the two halves of the razor. I didn't know it had two halves, but I do now. After unscrewing it, the paper clip came right out, and I had to push the cotton ball back the other direction because the hole is narrow on the bottom end.
So it came out with a little coaxing, I put it back together again, and it seems to be just fine. But it looks a little gummy inside, so I'm going to give it a turbosonic bath tomorrow, along with the new 1960 Super Speed Flair tip that came today. But it was supposed to be an F1 and it's an F4.
You know there are 8 parts to a Merkur Vision?
