this is a very nice, thorough tutorial that someone has on their website. I thought it would be valuable to post a link to the tutorial on our site.

brief snippet of the article:

Quote:So you want to take down a fat boy, that is, disassemble it. You may have one you have purchased off Ebay which is a basket case and need cleaned, you may have one you own that you want to replate.

Whatever the reason, you get caught up somewhere along the way. This guide will hopefully lend some assistance. While the learning curve is not steep, if you use a heavy hand or don't know what you are doing, you can ruin an otherwise good razor.

Use caution!

Remember, your razor is made out of brass, and it's relatively soft.

Hopefully, the razor you want to take apart looks like the one to the right. The date code says E1, so it's a prime target from the first quarter of 1959.

go to the preceding link for the rest of the tutorial as well as a seeing a very detailed breakdown with lots of photos!
