    I currently own the 6C and love it. I ordered a couple days ago the 6S at a discount price of $76 on eBay, in new unused condition!

    I’d love to be added to the ROARC group of Rockwell enthusiasts; I own the 6C and soon I’ll have the 6S.

    Kept the Rockwell Model T on the max setting. Two passes plus touchups gave me a BBS shave without incident. 20200506_163130.jpg 20200506_163130.jpg

    Hey guys, I reactivated my Rockwell today after a couple of weeks break.
    At the moment I use a Tiger Platinum @R6.
    I use Astra at 2-4, Feather at 2.
    Do you have fixed blade baseplate combinations? Or even blades that don't work at all in your Rockwell?

    R6 First Pass
    R5 Second Pass
    R4 Third Pass
    R3 Other areas on the body
    R2 Pick ups
    R1 Extremely sensitive areas, like ears

    Yes, I'm hairy.

    Cool, would never change in shave like I would do with a real adjustable.
    But I tend to use higher settings for body shave than I do for facial shave.

    I use most blades with the 6 plate, 5 with personna blue or feather.

    A friend sent me a lot of blades for testing. And I mean really a lot.
    I will have to make myself a list because there a really a lot of blades to test, and I have to test with a little bit of a system otherwise I will forget.
    For me a ideal blade works in Rockwell and Taiga for facial and body shave. At the moment I don't have one that fits all, so I use mostly Tiger Platinum @6 or with HLS Taiga for facial shave and ASP R6 for body.
