I found this safety razor in reasonable shape today and picked it up as its mechanism is very cool.

I have read a few Web posts about it but don't know much...

Any info you can share is helpful! T

Just a guess, but not really a wild one.  For many years, there was a company (may still exist, though I think it was acquired), called Segal Lock Co., located in Bridgeport, CT.  That was -- and probably still is -- the center of lock-making in the US.  The machinery, including the casting for the brass lock cases, was undoubtedly well suited to machining a razor, and the unusual mechanism has the look of a lock-maker.

That may not help, but it is at least a shot in the dark.

A bit of poking around reveals that the Segal was an interesting concept that relies on proprietary blades... but you CAN modify regular DE's to work, according to at least two youtube videos (which were otherwise pretty bad, so I wont link them here - google is your friend).
