    So I am embarking on a new challenge. @jgreenepa asked me if I could take a look at his F. I agreed to see what I could do.

    The spring is bent way out of shape and the guard bar is loose. I first tried to see if I could bond the guard on. No luck it did not hold. Looking inside the razor. I could see that there are 2 tabs that secure the guard to the razor. These are loose.

    The only way forward is to take the razor apart. I will need to drill out the 2 rivets to remove the top spring. That way I can get a good look at how the guard actually fits.

    If I can fix the Guard. I will be able to do a much better job massaging the spring into shape. I will then turn up some new rivets to reset the spring. I will clean and polish the razor some to spruce it up.

    This razor is VERY sentimental to Jeff. So I am honored to be able to try and get it back to shaving form.

    I have a Type F with a similar, but smaller issue. I think the damage occured when someone tried to pry the blade out, rather than injecting a new blade to get the old one out.

    I will start on Monday. I do know now that the rivets are stainless steel. So I will make new ones from that.
