Hi Hippo. I'm a brand new newbie on here as i've only just found this forum and this is my 1st post. I'm quite new to this DE razor thing and i'm well & truly hooked. Wish i'd found out about yourself sooner as i've purchased a Fatboy off fleabay and sent it to the razor emporium in Phoenix Arizona for a "tune-up" and blade gap adjustment. Chomping at the bit for it's return but the US postal service makes ours look like speedy gonzales. If I ever get another razor that needs some tlc, you will be my first point of call.

I would be most grateful if you or anybody else's could advice how to reinstall the crimp at the end of the reassemble. I can't get the crimp to hold. Am I supposed to do something to the crimp, or just put it in position and lightly hammer it back in?it will not hold.

There was 'someone' selling new discs for the Fatboy/Slim some time ago. Might have been on ebay? Executive Shaving maybe?
