1. Inspection, Repairs are made, guards are straightened, doors are straightened, mechanics are checked, end caps soldered (purchased on Etsy or donor razor supplied by customer), razor is then disassembled.
2. Deep Cleaning / Disinfecting in 160 degree Ultrasonic with special degreaser / soap scum remover, then a 10 minute soak in Pine Sol (kills 99.9% of germs including Covid-19- FDA Approved)
3. Polishing. Worn, pitted locations are sanded and or smoothed out, heavy pitting is glass blasted to a satin finish if needed (less than 5% of razors). Outer Head Surface and End caps are sanded to remove all scratches then mirror polished smooth. The rest of the razor will have a polished factory finish.
4. Hand Polish with special jewelers cloths.
5. Ultrasonic Deep Clean / Disinfecting at 160 degrees, 160 degree Electroclean, Surface Activation, Bright Nickel Plating
6. 24K Hard Gold Plate or Rhodium if chosen.
7. I paint the numbers and selector spring with Testors enamel paint. The black ring below the selector dial on Fatboys and Executives is now USA made automotive pinstriping, which in our experience lasts longer than painting with enamel. Red Tips and Blue Tips use Humbrol Enamel paints then are baked on, repeated and baked 2nd time.
8. Reassembly, blade gap is checked and set, mechanics are checked.
9. Final Hand Polish
