    Gillette 17mm DeLuxe--Large Hole

    I’m pretty convinced they were meant to be soldered onto a handle. Leftovers. A little fiddley. But any Deluxe is a treat.

    Gillette Hybrid Tech - noticed variations (Warning: Pic heavy)

    I will defer to Achim. If it’s post war, so be it. It rocks the worlds understanding a bit, but so be it. I had a romantic notion attached to the 1939 date. And it clicks a few other ways. The set I have is in a pre war Bakelite case. Certainly could be leftover stock. I like the idea that...

    Gillette Hybrid Tech - noticed variations (Warning: Pic heavy)

    Hi Adam. The Bakelite cased Hybrid falls under what I call “non-typical” sets. Gillette England made a few. My definition of a non typical set includes: 1. Were the dates of manufacture consistent between razor and case? 2. Can you find other examples of the same mismatch? Fulfilling both...

    The girls came over. My ex is a bit round heeled. But she’s got some awesome daughters. Renesance festivals pay good money for this stuff.

    I thought it might trigger some PTSD, but surprisingly it hasn’t. I’m sleeping good. The kid is taking charge of what he can. We are actually meeting with a local engineer to see about having a T1 line installed, so he can keep up with his job. First estimate was 20,000.

    No offense taken. Your advice is logical, reasonable. I’m a fan of logic and reason. An Irish Wake is just one part of the process. I’m old enough to have witnessed an Irish Wake in Brooklyn. Somebody’s uncle. Carried from house to house, always with a drink in his hand. I’m Native enough that...

    Noted, and ignored. A good drunk exposes your soul. Your soul should not be exposed daily.

    Tonight will be dedicated to drinking heavily. Not a solution, but makes crying easier. I’ve actually got a day off tomorrow. I got the kid back from San Francisco, so the critters should be good. I’m a fricken city boy running 2 farms. Just enough time around farms to be dangerous. Neighbors...

    @TexLaw, Thanks for a bit of exposition. I’ve been feeling overly responsible. At some point I have to step out. I want to finish a couple negotiations, since I initiated them, and they are reasonable. I can’t back off essentiallly.

    And I’m not good at crying. And I can’t stop.

    Walter died in a simple motorcycle accident. 30-35 mph. Helmet on. We had both done the road at 90. More than once. And no, it’s still a 25mph road

    If you have the means, and a trusted executor, designate funds. I refuse to profit from the estate. But figure 2,500/ month minimum, extrapolate for circumstances.

    My best friend died in slow motion a month ago. Another friend, her house burned to the ground,about a month after her husband died. Same time frame. I have found myself managing 2 estates, neither which are mine. One is complicated, but easy. I know what he wants. The other is a pain...

    Somebody needs to jump on the English flat bottom Tech! Great shaver, and you don’t see many for sale in the US.
