For his last birthday, I gave him an EJ 98.  I am told that he is quite intelligent and will attend a highly regarded college (TBD) next fall.  Last night, he came downstairs, quite bloody, and stated that his shave was terribly rough.  I was able to diagnose the problem.  Upon changing the blade, HE SHAVED WITHOUT THE BASE PLATE.

That is sad and funny all at the same time.  I take it you are not sending him to an engineering school. Smile

Thank you for the concern.  He's fine.  He is like Winston Churchill:  "I am always ready to learn, although I do not always like being taught."  He got a big dose of both last night.

The rest of you parents out there know that the "So I have a 17 year old son ..." lead is a lot like "A guy walked into a bar ...".

Well I've actually done this myself. That's exactly why I don't shave in the mornings anymore.

this reminds me of someone saying you get to meet stupid side of you when you use someone else's shower and have no clue how to work it.

Anyways, is it even possible to shave without a base plate?  so the only thing that was holding the blade down was the handle, so the side was free to chatter?

Man, I was expecting this to be a joke. I kept looking for a line that he played a Halloween prank on you. Hopefully this doesn't turn him off to the whole thing. 

A couple generations ago boys/men his age beat back the Axis powers...

Maybe I will give my son a TTO to limit the variables.  Wink

No parent here but this is close to a bar joke:   Two dyslexics walk into a bra...   BA-DUM-TSHH!

Now you know what to get him for his next birthday - a TTO or injector. Smile

I can't be too critical... Let he who has not reassembled something only to find he had "extra" parts cast the first stone.

I'm giving my 17 year old son a Krona. Can't think of a better starter DE. Cheap, smooth and a great shaver.
