Winner, Name that Ware January 2017

Monday, February 27th, 2017

The Ware for January 2017 is a Philips Norelco shaver, which recently died so I thought I’d take it apart and see what’s inside. It’s pretty similar to the previous generation shaver I was using. Hard to pick a winner — Jimmyjo got the thread on the right track, Adrian got the reference to the prior blog post…from 8 years ago. I think I’ll run with with Jimmyjo as the winner though, since it looks from the time stamps he was the first to push the thread into the general category of electric shaver. Congrats, email me to claim your prize (again)!

Winner, Name that Ware December 2016

The ware for December 2016 is a diaper making machine. The same machine can be configured for making sanitary napkins or diapers by swapping out the die cut rollers and base material; in fact, the line next to the one pictured was producing sanitary napkins at the time this photo was taken. Congrats to Stuart for the first correct guess, email me for your prize!
