    Default fat boy tightening issue?

    recently found a very nice 59 fatboy which is one of my prized possessions. currently am using a slim (when not using a straight). just wandering how the tightening knob is supposed to feel. it doesn't have the same feel as my slim or super speeds when tightening. sort of a squishy feeling, not a solid tight feeling. i'm afraid to twist it till it feels tight. Is this how they feel? It seems to hold the blade okay.

    Could be it is dirty internally. They can be disassembled, even partially, so to allow thorough cleaning. For ideas you could look here Take Down: Fat boy comes apart or here 1959 E2 Gillette Fatboy Disassembly.wmv - YouTube
