The only electric I have found that gets anywhere near a wet shave is the Wahl balding clippers, but they are not cordless. Tried a couple of cordless over the years and they were pretty rubbish.

I do full head shaves with mine and they get it 95% towards wet shave standard, but nothing ever beats a wet shave...

There's wet shave and then there's wet shave, if your using one of those overpriced plastic things and gunge from a can then that could well be the issue. I use a 55 year old Gillette with a single sided blade, decent shaving foam lathered with a brush and an after shave cream, gives a good close shave without any soreness.

I have some Nivea balm Tony....it seems to make my skin feel soft but by lunchtime I can feel the stubble
So, I'll try the leccy for a couple of weeks (if I can go that long) and if things don't improve I may go back to a careful wet shave OR grow another beard What do you mean grow another beard....have you got one already?
God only knows how it will end

Unless you've got skin like a rhino's backside I think you'll have to accept that wet shaving each day to a very high standard without getting sore or using an electric razor and expecting the same results is just not possible.
A few years back I used a Philips electric razor and found you can still get sore if you try and get every bit of hair off.
