Picked up a Schick Automatic Simplified Magazine Razor,,,or as more commonly known as a type C1 Will give it a better cleaning and try to load new blades in it so I can try shaving with it. Anyone successful in putting modern blades in a "C"?
So far I really like this razor, nice weight to it and I like the open comb, its a pretty cool design

Modern blades should fit just fine, the only difference is that starting in the mid 50's with the Hydro-magic they started putting the cutouts in the blades. You can also just manually slide a blade into the razor.
That is a very nice looking razor!
Rollin like a big wheel, and cuttin like a big knife.
Uh oh....I put a modern blade in the magazine (on top of the old blades) and the slide to inject a new blade is now jammed. It is in the "out" position. I cant see a way of taking it apart, removed the 2 tiny screws but they do not seem to do anything. It is designed so that you cannot open the door with the blade magazine when the slide is out. Been messing with it for an hour and getting no where. I noticed that the modern blades are quite a bit thinner and they have the 2 slots cut in them.
I merely inserted mine into the head. I didn't try to load them into the magazine. I can't comment on that part of it - I figured it wasn't worth trying.
If you hand insert into the head though - works good!
I'm sorry I didn't mention how I loaded it. I read what I wrote above and it could definitely/easily be interpreted to mean that modern blades work very good in the mag as well. Ooops. I hope it wasn't too misleading that way. : /
No updates...I have been really busy and havent had time to play with it. It isnt jammed solid, there is a little bit of movement and I can feel something inside hitting against something solid. Im guessing that the modern blade being thinner is hitting up against the end of the razor and is just below the slot for the blade to come out...if that makes sense

Just curious to see how you fared in getting it unjammed. I have the toothed bar version of the C type and I love the way it shaves. I am afraid it is the only injector type razor I have used so I have no idea how it compares to other injectors.
I have been searching for the open comb version without success. But I don't give up easy.
wchnu: If I liked him more I might actually feel bad about that.
