Whatever I will come up with will not nearly be as cool as the original. Most proprietary blades of the time where proprietary just to be proprietary. Valet. Probak. This blade had a proprietary shape because it served a purpose. Slide blade in, bend the tongues - click - shave. I'm not sure how the "click" works, but it is very satisfying.
Thomas Warnock Bigoney (1889-1977) - you were a very clever man.
As an Enders newbie: which one is which? Which one has the tighter fit?
My pre-war Razor, in red has the tighter fit, but could just be my example. The two post war Shaver variants are pictured here in green and black.
Thanks. I've got a post-war in orange then. The Proline fit is already quite tight. As that's the only model I have, that's what I'll be working with. Right now a blade adapter seems straight forward - the shape of an Enders blade, a bit shorter from front to back, with two small protrusions for the holes of the Proline blade to hold it in place. Maybe differently placed protrusions (front to back) on different models for different blade exposure. Make the Enders adjustable

My "B-20s" arrived yesterday. Vendor made a mistake and sent P-20s, so I will have to wait a bit longer to use these.
The green one came in today, so I cleaned them both up. Any idea how to get these yellow spots out? Heheh. Just kidding. I wasn't expecting the marbling. These really clean up nicely.
They are quite gorgeous. My orange one has some marbling as well. It took all of 10 minutes to clean up. I've spent more like 10 hours on my heavily stained GEM lather catchers so far and I haven't even resorted to the Dremel for polishing yet. I have done some quite accurate measurements and would assume that the P-20 won't fit.

carlfrommo: Hey guys. Last minute question here. What shot size should I use for flying reindeer?
Dec 24, 2019 22:11:29 GMT -6
ordinaryshaver: You want to use 3 1/2 in magnum lead shot, in size T. Problem solved.

ordinaryshaver: No steel, too light and use an extra full choke, unless you have a good blind setup

carlfrommo: Well, last night was a failure. I had one shot, and I didn't lead the red-nosed one enough. I think I ended up shooting the driver. Might have gotten him in the leg. Hard to tell because he was wearing red pants and coat.

carlfrommo: He turned his sled away and landed on the roof two blocks down. Out of range for a second shot. I did notice he walked with a bit of a limp though. He shouldn't be coming in my yard anyway.

mrconklin: Last time I hunted waterfowl. 2 3/4 shells were standard and the cool kids were starting to play with the 3 inch, but most guns weren't made for them. Steel was also just starting to be mandated on Federal and State land.
