  3. I had to get one of these Stahlys and found one in like new condition. I've tried the head on a standard handle and it shaves wonderful. I've not had the courage to try the vibration mode yet. There's a funny video on the tube with a kid attempting to shave with a vibrating Stahly and chopping up his face like a weed-wacker through grass!

  4. At the flea market yesterday and scored a Gillette new oc, OK condition (going to hit with brasso), the teeth are all straight too; paid 5 bucks for so score! No picture though so I guess it didn't happen? lol.

    Sweet 1954, near perfect 40's style Z-1 Super Speed from a woman in San Francisco. Blades are iffy (correctness), case shows light crazing. Under $15, though!

    There were some Craftsman blades in the used section.

  6. picked up this stuff at a local auction this weekend. nothing special but only 27 bucks. the parker 51 vacumatic will easily make up for the cost :001_tt2: there is actually a lot more but this is the good stuff. i also had to buy the junk to get to the good stuff lol

  8. There have been so many nice score posts lately I thought I might as well get in on the fun. This is my antique market find from last weekend...saw a little plain wooden box sitting closed on a table and opened it up to reveal this (the box ended up being a Wilkinson box actually). Nice surprise! Insta grabbed this bad boy and left a happy man ;)

    Happy hunting everyone

    Very Nice indeed!
     
  10. Nice find, have you tried shaving yet? It looks as if there might be an alignment issue. There are a handful of threads on here discussing how to easily fix it.
     
  11. I have not tried it yet. I didn't notice anything wrong with my examination of it but i see what you mean in the pic...I'll have to take a closer look tonight thanks! Glad to hear it's easily fixed worst case ;)
     
  12. That's a Sweet find.

    Excellent score!
     
  14. Not to be nosy, but did you beat this price? Fat Boys and Executives are great shaves btw. Congrats.
