We all thought you were tougher than that, Harold, and dangled it in the lathe -to- trim it.

I've got a "Rolls Razor" laying around. It's a case with a rack and pinion setup on one edge. The sides of the case have a stone and a leather face. You insert the razor head and push/pull a handle which flips the razor head back and forth as it slides down the stone...

Well, I have this eccentric device that I grip in the chuck and attaches to the shears------you get the idea. Cropped by Graziano. Doesn't everyone do that?

Yep! I've got one as well -- though it is years since I have shaved. It pushes the blade along the stone, but draws it along the leather strop. The two side pieces with the strop and the stone are keyed so they can't be interchanged, so there is no chance of pushing the blade on the strop and pulling it on the stone.
The blade is like a section of a straight razor blade, except that it has a U-shaped guard frame which toggles back and forth as the sharpening goes on. The blade has a double-D socket in it, so it fits onto a projection on the shaft between the pinions on each end by pressing on at 90 degrees, and then rotating to be parallel to the shaft.
I can't find mine at the moment, but I do seem to remember that it had a rack-and-pinion at each side, not just one side -- to assure that the shaft did not cock in operation.
Enjoy, DoN.

I inherited one from my father. If I forget to shave with my Philips for a couple of days, then I use it to remove the long growth. Much better than disposables. Alan in beautiful Golden Bay, Western Oz, South 32.25.42, East 115.45.44 GMT+8 VK6 YAB ICQ 6581610 to reply, change oz to au in address
