    Default 1912 Ever-Ready Flip Top Problem?

    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.

    Default 1912 Problem

    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.

    I will file that fact away for future reference! Thanks for the tip!!!
    Kind regards,

    Wouldn't you like to be a Gemocrat, too?

    Sometimes I teach, but I am ever a student.

    Life is not a journey to the grave, with the intention of arriving with a pretty and well preserved body, but sliding in broadside, a beer in each hand, totally worn out and exclaiming WOW what a ride!
