    WTB '64 Slim instructions sheet

    I got a a cased Slim, J4, but I don't have the sheet/pamphlet that came with it. If you have a spare I'd like to talk to you about it. The '64 is my nostalgia razor, and while I wasn't looking to collect, I found a really great condition one on the Bay.

    Missing my little buddy

    Two weeks ago we had to say goodbye to my little guy, Carson. We knew hypercalcemia that he had would eventually get him, but it claimed him sooner than we thought. He chose me. When we visited the shelter, he came up to me, and has been my constant companion since that day in 2010. My wife...

    Bullet tip won't open

    Hello, I received a bullet tip micromatic that will not open. The handle knob turns in both directions, but the door on the head will not open. I can feel vibration through the head.

    Aeropress PIF

    Hello all! I have an Aeropress that I bought in March of this year that is not being used. I used it a dozen times or so and while the coffee is tasty, I find I am not using it. I tend to use a pour over cone or French press at home, and bring a thermos of auto-drip to work rather than using...

    Shave like the Apollo astronaughts!

    I just read a post on FB, by the Project Apollo. The hygiene kit included a Gillette Techmatic razor and the photo shows an Old Spice shave cream. For those interested, it is a post from May 1. I don't know if it is permissible to cut and past the post here, but I believe that if you have a FB...

    I want a "Do Over"!

    Today was one of those shaves. It was okay, accomplished what intended to, but left me wishing I could start over! By the end, I wished I'd used a different soap. Everything else was fine, but my soap and lather could have been better. Good thing those whisker follicles are already at it making...

    Adding an Aeropress to the cupboard...

    ... and not sure what my wife will say! She isn't a coffee drinker (hates it, but lovingly bought me a wonderful Carpresso burr grinder that is still going strong!), and wonders why I need yet another method to brew this stuff! Started with a nice BonaVita drip maker that has a bloom cycle. Then...
