View Full Version : 1912 Ever-Ready Flip Top Problem?

02-10-2009, 12:37 PM
I have an Ever-Ready ptd. 1912 razor. When I put a blade in it the flip top becomes a little loose. Can this be fixed? If so, how? I used it for the first time and it gave me a good shave but I am concerned the blade could move. The flip top fits tight without a blade in the razor.

The tension plate at the base of the shaving head has lost some springiness.

I repaired one of mine by removing the rivets that hold the shaver head together and bending the spring plate in order to add tension. I put it all back together with two small brass screws and nuts.

What can I say... I really love my Gems.
