    Abstract: The Razor-to-Can-Top Docking System allows users to hang a wide variety of razors, 5, securely on a modified aerosol-shaving cream can top, 3, for storage between uses. This is accomplished by attaching a stalk, 1B, to the can top, 3, with a nub, 1A, at the end of the stalk. The razor is hung on the stalk via a hole or cavity in the razor's handle that engages the nub, 1A, on the stalk, 1B. Without the razor, the stalk, 1B, may be put out of the way and closed to the can top. In the open position, the stalk and nub can engage the cavity. The cavity may be throughgoing or only partially excavated, leaving an undercut lip to engage the nub. It is understood that a wide variety of nub shapes and cavities may be used with the condition that the chosen nub and cavity conform to each other such that the engagement is secure.

The guard is released to freely expose the blade for cleaning/sharpening while maintaining the blade attached to the carrier. The container includes an opening for receiving the exposed blade and opposed arrays of honing shoes are provided along a path for engaging the blade during sharpening movement of the razor along the container. A guide track having guide grooves engages the blade guard to ensure accurate movement of the blade with respect to the honing shoes. One honing shoe array along one side of the path is spring biased toward the other to assure unison movement and efficient sharpening action.

  • Patent number: 5007533
    Abstract: An open-top vessel having a closure cap, and a razor holder for releasably supporting a water rinsed razor and its blade within the vessel spaced below the closure cap. The vessel may be filled with mineral oil to a level above the blade, to have the blade submerged in the mineral oil. The razor holder may be supported on the closure cap, and rotatable via an exposed handle, for moving the razor as submerged in the mineral oil. More than one vessel may be used, as a kit, with each additional vessel also having a closure cap, a razor holder, and handle; and one or more vessels may be filled with mineral oil and one or more vessels may be left empty. The razor may be moved from vessel to vessel successively as it is being treated with the mineral oil and stored.

  • Patent number: 5002818
    Abstract: An adhesive mixture reworkably adheres electronic integrated circuit dies to hybrid microcircuit substrates, and includes a thermosetting epoxy resin. A thermoplastic resin additive allows the mixture to retain the high adhesive strength of the epoxy resin up to approximately 150.degree. C., or the upper limit of the operating and testing temperature range of the dies, and then soften sufficiently to enable defective dies to be removed at a temperature of preferably between 150.degree. C. and 200.degree. C. without damage to the substrate or adjacent dies.

  • Patent number: 4927697
    Abstract: Flux residue drawn by capillary action into the small gap between a conductor pattern support e.g. a printed circuit board, and a leadless electronic component surface mounted on the support is hard to remove and may corrode the conductor pattern. Herein the component is fixed to the support by a pad of adhesive elastomer so as to give a larger and hence more easily cleanable gap between component and support and the component connector pads are coupled to the conductor pattern by way of solder pillars formed by pre-loading the component connector pads and the pattern with precisely defined amounts of solder and, e.g. during a vapor phase re-flow, causing the pre-loads to merge and form the solder pillars.
