Hello all, long time no see. I was heavily overwhelmed with daily work and couldn’t find time to work on the hobby. In my spare time, i revised the GEMInjector which I posted about it here before. I designed it as a spring loaded type. It both utilizes GEM and Injector blades. I got the prototype and took some notes. Now there are a couple of things to be tweaked. I don’t know when i will be able to get it machined but i will try my best.
Here is the short video i posted in instagram. More will be coming.
Finished polishing and buffing the top caps. Now they have a mirror finish. I left the inside untouched since it takes a long time to finish it. Just gave them a light polish. The baseplates are on the way to be buffed.
Finally I managed to get what i want. After a couple of failures in machining the handle, i received a neatly shaped handle with tight tolerances. It has tiny machining marks which can be seen inside the helices in the above photo but it wont be an issue. It looks better in person. I’m planning to offer the machined version without any extra process and a polished version which will be paired with a TR-2 head.
Recently i have been working on a razor project, GEMInjector: A razor which can accommodate both injector and GEM blades. That may be interesting i think. People are very enthusiastic about seeing a modern GEM Single Edge type razor, i had some sketches for it and thought what if it is able to take injector blades too? and Ta-da!
I shared a short rendered video of the model in instagram, then people commented about the head being very big and i noticed the mistake thereafter, the handle was scaled incorrectly and making the head look very big. This time i rendered it correctly.
