I'm curious to hear more about this....I loaded mine without any issues....but I may have gotten lucky.

No one has mentioned anything...aside from sending it to them since it looks like is has radiation poisoning.  Elaborate?

If yours loaded okay and shaves well, no problem.  A lot of these don't seem to load well with modern blades. My type F dulled every blade I ran through it and I considered selling it until I found a thread about it in one of the wetshaving sites.  I found someone who knew about the blade stops on some dulling all the blades and he showed me that on those, you have to take a tooth pick or something and as you load the blade, you push the sharp edge of the blade back away from the blade stops with the toothpick and it keeps it from dulling the blade.  That worked perfectly for mine, but if I don't do that, it completely dulls the blade and cuts no whiskers at all.  I can't find the conversation that we all had about that (search engines these days have so many commercial links that it's getting hard to find actual information  Dodgy   ), but on this page go to the first post by billyfergie and he alludes to it:
