Ok, so very inexpensively I picked up a broken fatboy. Once I get the adjuster unstuck it might actually be usable. So I took it apart as far as I could- according to the vintagesaws.com instructions.
The problem, it appears, is that whatever held the TTO knob into place is no longer there. I've spent the last hour trying to find a solution on the computer here to no avail. I just can't see what held it in place. An o-ring? A collet type of thing? Whatever it was, it is gone out of this razor.
Anyone have a good picture of one they have disassembled?
Nick Rivers: Hillary. That's an unusual name.
Hillary Flammond: It's a German name. It means 'she whose bosoms defy gravity'.
Nick Rivers: I'm pleased to meet you. My name's Nick.
Hillary Flammond: Nick? What does that mean?
Nick Rivers: Oh, nothing. My dad thought of it while he was shaving.
