Looks very good now finished. I'm also having problems tracking down the stair tool, but have got a couple of possible leads.
Why don't  you use one of the lavender extra long cables and cut it down? Has to be a reasonably close match to the purple?

I've only just realised that I really need a floor tool to complete my De Stijl project, as it was part of the original spec, and not an option-but the few that are on eBay start at 20.
Some of these tool prices are getting silly-I was offered a stair tool today, but at 15 plus P&P...

Managed to pick up a crevice tool on eBay and a stair tool from a Dyson repairer, 12 the pair and both in reasonable condition.
Will start the restoration tomorrow.

Just given a tenner for a tidy working DC01 De Stijl. All it needs is a Hepa filter cover and come to think of it, probably a Hepa filter too. Not one to sell, one to mothball. Can anyone help???

We found two perfect ones a few days ago. One sold already this week for 22 delivered to a woman who had been waiting. We still have one. These are very rare now.

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

Call me anal, but I remembered this last week. We got a DC04 in that had an 'as new' looking purple/yellow flex on that was to refurbish for the shop floor. It tested great on the meter, so our De Stijl DC04 was brought down from the loft, unwrapped, and the flex swapped. The new one we fitted prior went on the shop floor machine.  :-*

Our DC04 De Stijl is now bang on!

When we move/expand sideways/open a second shop [which one is up in the air as yet] these De Stijl machines will be in a cabinet for visitors to look at.

Well I was about to say you can get a new purple and yellow power cord with rubbers and switch for 15 pound on ebay but you've already got one.

I need a De Stijl red wand, then mine will look like this when it gets its 6 monthly bath. Every 6 months I take it apart and bath the bathable parts, fully wash the bin etc,
I always rinse my bin with a bit of cold water after emptying, 5 mins with water filling and emptying, 10 mins with a towel, and onto the system, Could do with getting a new power cord, But not sure wether i want to spend 15 pound on a new power cord witht the yellow plug on etc. since I bought a perfectly good purple one of you guys a couple months ago. Shame the plugs green though not yellow.
