?

If the designs were made public on thingverse would you have this razor printed for personal use?

    I think 3D razors can be good an inexpensive alternative to the expensive razors now. You will be able to get a great quality shave. It won’t be as nice looking as metal.

    You can get a metal look with a plastic that is mixed with metal particulate. They do have filaments already mixed to different ratios of metal to plastic in bronze and stainless steel for example. The plastics they use which I think is standard PLA are also supposed to be denser and have more weight to them.

    The only drawback as I read up on this is they chew up nozzles quickly but that wouldn't be an issue for you since you should be able turn out a crapload of replacement nozzles for your printer when not if you finally get one.

    And replacement nozzles are fairly inexpensive.

    I looked into having the TNNSER 3D printed in Brass Mix filament. They said it could definitely be done but let me know that it would be more brittle than a regular 3D prin. The metal actually takes away from structural integrity at this point. Still pretty cool and if it wasn't so expensive I would have gone ahead with it.

    Tom White Tuesday. Playing with exposure in the TBT, Kai blade and one shim, can definitely feel the difference. Not sure the additional exposure is for the better, now had to be careful at that tricky spot at the back of my head. I'll lose the shim tomorrow.

    I used the Wabbit for a second pass, Chick blade and it was easy to use, reasonably effective. It feels too disposable cart like for my taste. I packed up my scale but the difference in weight between the Wabbit and my Enders, the only injector razor not packed up, is quite substantial. After the pass I took out both the Leaf and the Enders and both were picking up residual stubble I missed with the Wabbit. [​IMG]

    PS I love the Wabbit design with the magnets!!
