Ever want to know what the electronics looks like in a Philips Norelco shaver? Ok, so I'm pretty sure not many people care, but I did (and I had a reason). I have been using one of the cheaper models (purchased from WalMart for about $40) for about 2 years now and it finally pretty much died on me the other day.
I won't go into much detail, but because I was interested in salvaging the motor, I tore the thing apart until I got to the bare electronics. Here's what it looks like:
If you're not sure what these look like before they're massacred, here's a photo of the one I bought to replace it, which is pretty much what the old one looks like, just a little more modern looking:
What's that? Why did I want the motor you ask? Well stay tuned...
