Busted V8 on Ebay
« on: May 19, 2017, 05:47:32 PM »
Hi All,

Just saw this:
http://www.ebay.com/itm/Dyson-Hand-Held-Vacuum-FOR-PARTS-OR-REPAIR/222516301990

What I find interesting is the price.  Specifically, the price and lack of bids.  Assuming I can point out the massive crack in the cyclone and get the item for $10, what do you think about my chances of fixing it for personal use (so a less than ideal bodge with epoxy wouldn't be a issue)? 

I know it's missing the extension ($30) the filters ($15 & $20) and charger ($20?), so I would have to commit to at $85 additional to get the full kit.   I could use pieces of my 35 (extension, possibly charger if they're compatible), and do without the HEPA filter, at least for a bit.

The backup plan, if it doesn't work on delivery, could be to sell the accessories & battery to recoup my outlay.

Am I over estimating out well this could turn out?

Can confirm it wasn;t me - although sometimes if I think something is worth a fair bit ill bid it up a pound or two to make the seller get a little more cause no doubt someone else will bid up three pound more than they originally did for the sake of something. - only accidentally won something once  :'( I had to say I accidentally clicked the bid button and they re-listed it - the one before me must of been doing what I did because I only bid 41 pound - they bidded 40 pound - they dind;t bid up :D :D

That's not a nice thing to do Kyle, you cause the buyer and seller grief for no reason at all  :censored:

I've had people like you on items I'm selling and if I new who it was I would slap you into next week >:(

I was always told by a British friend of mine that I should never call a Englishman Welsh.  Something about sheep.

Anyway, it's easy to miss the US, all tucked away down there.

I like the welsh, especially if she's from the valleys.

I like sheep too.

I'll hit up youtube.  I'm sure that'll do wonders for my recommendations for months to come.
