I haven't used it yet but I'm sorely tempted. Sunbury has very kindly offered to restore it and bring it back as good as new. Replating is an option but since it was my grandfathers i think i'd like to keep it original.Robert Otten said:Back In high school 1966 I used #4 ( I know - I carbon dated myself). When I got back into wet shaving last January, I started with the 4 setting and it wasn't what I was after. My routine now is 7,5 and finish with 3. So, my recommendation would be starting out with a 4 setting.
This is a wonderful present your Father handed to you. I'd go for the replating as well. Hope you enjoy tonight's shave --- oh look at the time, you've done shaved and went to bed.
Thanks for all your advice on how best to use it.
