Further Adventures with a Braun Shaver
After several more attempts, I decided it really didn't work at all & I had nothing to lose by opening it.
Inside, the electric motor drives a tiny crank, which drives a tiny connecting rod, which makes the various shaving blades oscillate.
At least it does if the connecting rod is connected to the crank, which it wasn't & apparently never had been!
Connecting it & reassembling (fiddly job, glad I have an illuminated magnifying glass) - I now have a shaver which shaves.
Black mark for Braun quality control!
