Default Question about the Ekco AD 65 Black and Chrome

Hello,

Does anybody knows why there are (sometimes) 3 or 6 holes in the bottom of the Ekco Black and Chrome?

Never seen any holes in the base of an AD65.
Can you post a picture ?

The easy, most logical answer is to aid airflow through the set for cooling purposes.

Where are the trimmers located in this set? I’ve got an A22 where some goon bashed a hole in the side of it in line with the trimmers, I guess they thought they needed 24/7 access to them!
