Hi gents, I have read the comments with interest. Version 2 is a different beast from Version 1, the head on Version 2 is enclosed, it wraps around the base plate. Every one of the 50 we got in yesterday has been visually inspected and they are all good to go except 2 which have minor, cosmetic faults. Rather than send them back we will sell these as seconds for £35.00 or so when time allows. The machine tooled version has been a slow process, we took Edzell Engineering off the job (they promised everything - delivered very little) and asked Scottish Enterprise to help. They put us in touch with a firm of precision engineers who are based about 5 miles from us, they are an 'under the radar' firm, they don't even have a website yet they are making the jigs for Google and Facebook printed circuit boards to ridiculous tolerances. They have agreed to help us out. Hopefully we have this version ready for testing in around 3 weeks and go into production shortly thereafter. I have used the Investment Cast, Version 2 Claymore a few times and in my opinion it shaves just as well as Version 1. We have reduced the price of Version 2 by £5.00 to £69.50. Two passes and I'm good to go. The image below is a Version 2. Brian | Sales Director at Executive Shaving.
