  1. 1

    Glue a thin line of rubber grip stripping to the inside of the clamp using superglue. The rubber will help keep the clamp still and stationary. Use a 2-inch wide, metal flat-mouth clamp usually used for papers or hanging.

  2. 2

    Place the razor blade against the comb on the end where the teeth are the longest and widest. Make the comb and razor blade tops even.

  3. 3

    Place the clamp over the razor and comb so that the clamp holds the razor in place. Approximately a millimetre of the comb's teeth should be below the razor blade. Now you can use your razor comb.
