Replacing a Battery on an Electric Razor

Electric Razor in Pieces

Electric Razor in Pieces

I’ve had this razor for a lot of years now.  It hasn’t gotten a lot of use so, the only thing that went on it is the rechargeable battery.  I tried to use it but, the battery was dead.  I immediately stuck the recharger into it and planned on using it the next morning.  My wife saw it had been charging for a while and dutifully unplugged it.  I probably would have gotten another minute or two of use if I used it as soon as it was unplugged but, that happened hours before I wanted to trim my mustache.  When I took it apart I figured I would stop at radio shack and pick up whatever battery it used.  I was delighted to find that it used a AA battery.  I have a lot of them lying around.  The orange battery is the original and replacement is to it’s left.  I would have put the thing back together immediately except in the process of taking it apart there was this tiny little pointy piece of metal with a spring on it that jumped out from nowhere.  I have to figure out where it goes before I’m ready to put those cutting blades next to my face.

I didn’t follow this guy’s  directions as well as I should have.  My lawnmower still doesn’t work.

This is not a worm

This is not a worm

Just to the right of my right foot there is a critter that looks like a worm. It has a hard shell and a whole lot of legs. I don’t know what it is and I’ve never seen it before. I let it live. I hope that wasn’t a mistake.

I found this in Wikipedia I think it might be a Black Millipede.
