It helped that you bought a good one to start with! The only new parts are 2 agitator bearings and a belt and bag!

Our museum now has an imported Dyson DC17 in all the way from sunny Texas.

A nice addition to the museum arrived today.

Model: 1938 Bustler Goliath - manufactured by Vacuum Ltd. Birmingham, .no 00319

We have the original HP card showing it cost 11 to be paid in 10 shilling installments, first payment was July 1938 with payments through to 1940. It also has the letter of completion from Vacuums Ltd.

It is totally complete in great original condition.

Nice!! :o
Also, made in Birmingham? Perry Barr :))
DC14s are tanks, just need a slightly longer motor life. Do plastic parts often break on DC14s? Nope. DC41- Sexy looking futuristic and powerful machine. Just needs a better designed cleaner head wheel and cyclone clip along with a dense metal rod in the chassis.

Don't know, but it looks weird, should the bend be at the hose?

I know what you mean. Is the lower pole a different colour/thickness too?

It's still beautiful though!

The poles are the same material and fit into each other correctly. It could be either/or or the other way around?

It's not one of those machines where the bend goes at the bottom by the floor tool is it? I've seen American machines with that setup. All depends on the angle of the floor head I suppose
