Hope you ordered the one shown on Amazon since the other doesn't look right. I bought it from the US for $5 and prefer it to the more expensive LAB Series oil that I had before.
Yeah. Bought this one only but from another seller on Amazon.

Once I dismantled it and it took my quite some effort to refix it with the right alignments. Thanks in advance for you advice.
Glad to have helped. For daily cleaning, just washing it in toto under the tap is good enough. It is advisable to dismantle it and clean every part separately by removing the 3 blades and their covers about once or twice a month.

Finally the cutters gave up the ghost and it was barely cutting. So I replaced the heads with the spares I had bought at the same time. Performance back to original. I must say I am surprised at getting less than one year from the cutters. Normally, I get about two years. Now I will have to check for more spare heads.

I bought my set along with the shaver from amazon.com. Now just the cutters may not be a good option. I have at least six months to look around.

I was using Philips trimmer for close to two years but it suddenly stopped working this Tuesday. This time I wanted to try Braun as I had used that brand when in US and was satisfied. So after some search went and bought this one :

Which electric shaver/razor do you recommend?-d6d349bfad694ec79cb72dafd98ab852.jpg

I received it today and yet to open it. Will try it out in a couple of days and check how it works.
