The broken scale is what stinks. That won't keep it from shaving once she's restored though!
I do have a Fat Handle Gold Tech that could use a home. But the case could use a relining, plus a couple of slits on the outside. So either do it in red like original, or what ever I have available for a redone razor. It'll take me a while to decide.
Cool. I just relined an old Gillette metal case. I did it in red felt. The case was gutted and I got it as part of a lot. I initially spray painted it black but I noticed the paint cracking so I stripped it and now it's an aged brass look to it. The nickel plating was already mostly gone.
Rocnel SE50 (Feather/Kai blade razor) have left Turkey and should be arriving in 7-10 days
1984-1989 W. Germany stamped Merkur Futur. NOS with all paper/box, etc
Wilkinson Shavette from the 80's
One stainless steel Timeless razor made in the US
OC and scalloped head
I did the same on a case I showed in another thread about open comb razors, took off the plating and left it showing the brass, then lined it to fit the razor. One thing that I have done in the past on other types of cases, metal, wood and plastic, give it a good sanding. If possible, use etching primer on metal, then I use Rubberized Undercoating and spray a few light coats until completely covered. When dry, it'll have a textured feel to it and then it can be sprayed any color you like. It is very durable. Just might have to do it to this case.
Oh yeah, when using the etching primer, spray lightly, just a "dusting".
A real beauty Don. Congrats!
Talk about a serious post to re-take your throne on the haul thread...lol.
I finally decided to have a stab at honing. I have a Naniwa SS 1000, Norton 4/8, DMT D8C, and a stone holder in transit.
Yet another rabbit hole
And so it begins.
Yes, it is yet another rabbit hole!
I just picked up a 4000/8000 stone and a Chinese nat 12,000 to 15,000. It's very cool to be able to put an edge that you can actually use on a razor!
Is there ever an end to this hobby?
Let us know how it turns out.
Enjoy it. Let me know how you like it
Will do brother!
I have Beaver Wooodwright Barnacle Bob soap and aftershave, and the Dr. Jon's/ Beaver Woodwright The Bandit colaberation in soap and aftershave splash.
