All the tools look in good condition, no missing lint strips that I could see, you should break even!

We are always short of good stair tools for DC14's that, as you will know, need to be original if they are to actually fit. We have lots of brush tools, but few stairs. There is a DC05 head that we have some on eBay of, so another one in that pile which will be about a net 6 back.

With a DC07 Animal turbine tool and a few other bits in there, it will likely be OK. I'd have given a tenner for the stair tool alone (as its a project), so if the other bits stack up as expected, I guess we are in the black.

I'd have liked that job lot cheaper really, but I couldn't pass up that De Stijl stair tool as it's a rare thing. I have already had Dyson Doctor (of eBay) and Barlows of Salford near us trawl their stock to no avail.

Does anyone know, did these have a square or round Dyson plug on originally? We have both in purple/yellow but haven't checked them yet. Worst case scenario is a grey one.

We don't have a mint purple/yellow back hose either, so it may be a brand new silver one.

We have one or two of those in case of need. Not sure which of what [brush/stair], but I did see some in the box I was rooting in the other day. And the box we keep is the good stuff. It had everything in Dyson world in it except the De Stijl DC04 stair tool. :chuckle:

Having said that, I found a DC01 one in that box. Heck, there is even translucent blue tools in there and other obscurities. Just not the one I needed.......

Speaking of Pristine DC04's, look at wt I found very local to me ;D Even the bin is clear!

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.

We did a bit more on this today.

The new soleplate wheels came into stock:



We didn't have a good enough purple flex, so it had to have a brand new genuine Dyson grey one:



So we are now waiting on that stair tool:



When that arrives, its final polish time and any snagging.

Or you can make a destijl stair tool out of a DC07 low reach stair tool (red) and a Dc04 swivel neck tool (purple)
Cool, atleast you found a gd tool though now :)
PS you can get yellow brushbars new! :)

BTw I have that exact Dyson DC14 all floors in white/orange/silver and the bin on mine is horrendous, I have to look kinda closely to see the dust I have picked up, how do I restore it?

We found the right back hose used, that we have now washed and dried.

Waiting on the eBay guy to send the stair tool so we can give it a final polish, take some more photos and call it done.......

This may be teasing you just a little bit but....look what came in a bag tied to one of the DC01's in a joblot I got my hands on this morning!

Looks to have had very little use and some no use at all  8)

Also, it goes to show how most people don't appreciate how rare this stuff is! Here's me picking up what I can to complete my dc01 de stijl, mvacs using up the last of their stock on theirs and people just throw away more of what we need!

Very true! All this hanging on a DC01 De Stijl I picked up for 6  ;D

I've never had a nice complete De Stijl tool set before - just thought it was odd one should turn up now when there was a couple of threads running about them.

Thie like buses! There's a few on ebay too!

One more build thread wouldn't hurt! 6 with all those tools is a steal too!

Well that job lot of stuff arrived, and the stair tool was mint as thought. So today it got its final polish and we call it done.

I'm not thrilled about the grey flex, when I come across a mint purple/yellow one, I think we'll swap it over.

It will compliment our DC01 De Stijl nicely.  :thumbsup:
