@Ferret619

I Just did a quick check with a fatboy, slim, black beauty, and a Rockwell Model T.

The fatboy, slim, and the black beauty all have exposed blade tabs when a blade is seated. I cannot see an issue here as the blade tabs can be used to pivet the blade loose if stuck. The Rockwell Model T has no exposed blade tabs and the blade is seated on the inside of the razor head when the doors are shut. When opened I can see a potential for the blade to get stuck if its like any of the blades I have recently used.
i have just gone through my pile of razors (fat boy, variously techs, 40s super speed, Karve, futur heck even a jack the barber thing from Coles) and the only one that gave me grief was the r41 with an Astra-
I tried a nacet in the r41 after and had no issue.
not something I had actually ever looked at but yep, the astra does seem to be the stickiest yet discovered in this new hostile frontier.

Who would have thought wax dots would bring out such passion?

OK - the rules of engagement in this thread

Thread will be shut down if it goes off the rails.
OK, maybe I'll just send it off the rails on both counts ;)

Flaunting your ridiculously fast line speed in your avatar is just a little tasteless, given that some of us have to put up with a connection 1/10th of that bitrate... :oops:

Just sayin'...

Yes- obviously the tension here is born out of envy for marks line speed.

OK, just completed my mandatory P&C PC Sensitivity Training and have "woke"-en up to my error.

I realise now that I should not make any mention of the 1000/400 connection which I could sign up to at any time just for the day and instead seek to empathise with my brother and sisters suffering in internet backwaters.

Oh bugger, better ban me from this thread too
