Another Antiquity

A coworker just walked into my office and said, "Here, I don't have the time to screw with this." He then dumped a navy blue leather clamshell box containing a caramel-colored, bakelite-handled Schick E3 and a Brass Magazine with some blades. Interior is red leatherette with gold printing, "Schick Injector Razor." The thing is dirty as can be, still has the owners tiny little hairs in it and might be fun to clean up.:w00t:

Pictures to follow..
 
The best kind of acquisition, the free acquisition!

I look forward to the pics (post tiny hair gunk that is).

After some Rad cleaning to include:
  • 10 Minutes at a rolling boil
  • 50-50 CLR and Hot Water for 2 Minutes
  • Tooth Brush Scrubbing with Hot Water and Dawn
I thought I would put up a few pictures.

You can carefully turn the spring with ears to the left (I use a tiny Crescent wrench) then open up the head. Inside you will find a fine layer of brown crud that all the boiling & soaking in the world won't remove. Soak it in Scrubbing Bubbles, then wipe it all out with a Q-Tip.

In the future, take it easy with the boiling water, since you can wreck delicate handle material with too much heat.DSCN0895.JPG
