Huh  I get that Gibbs blades have extra notches in the ends, but what does a "blade aligner" do?
Won't the razors themselves have that?

John, the "blade aligner".........................wait for it............................aligns the blade. When you notch a modern blade there is play in it and you have to eyeball the alignment when tightening it down. Someone developed these and when you get them, you usually end up buying more than you need to make it worthwhile to the 3D printer. I'm getting a quote for 30 now but there will be a 2 week plus wait and my new to me Gibbs arrives on Friday.  Happy2 Hoping someone has a few to get me by till mine arrive

Dave,
           You don't have to wait for those buddy just get a good pair of scissors and slice off a little bit of of both tabs. Take a pencil, or your fingernail, ( you got the idea) and just adjust the blade. That's what I do it's quick and easy.
    Let me know how those work out. I also want to try those they look simpler, and quicker

No problem. I'm certain I'll like it as I've used it before. I remember using Frank's Dragonsbeard and I've wanted one ever since. Was just waiting for a nice enough specimen to come along.

Oh yeah, Frank has had a lot of those and I've talk to him about a couple of time for some advice on them. It's nice to have good shaving buddies like that, and to send you razor tabs for Gibbs.
